We lost something beautiful

We’ve lost something beautiful on earth. We lost a forest – a forest seven times bigger than the country of the Netherlands. Over the last 25 years, forest areas have rapidly disappeared. In Indonesia alone, over 74 million acres have disappeared and what was once green, blooming and full of life, is now gone. Scientists estimate that within the next 20 years, most of the plant and animal species in Indonesia could be lost forever. We don’t have time to wait

A flourishing food forest

Gula Gula is a social enterprise dedicated to the development and maintenance of food forests all around the world. In collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, we developed a unique, simple and cheap method for local Indonesian farmers to create a flourishing forest out of degraded land by letting nature work. Gula Gula’s Food Forest shows us how people can live in harmony with nature, and make a decent income.

Our impact

As a direct result of CO2 off-setting and by investing in the program, the Gula Gula Food Forest already supports the livelihoods of over 111 cooperative farmers or 86 families directly. A further 1,600 people in the wider community are able to benefit as a larger variety of food becomes available and ecosystem functions are being restored. The regulation of water flows is seen as most important. The Food Forest makes it possible for people to grow food and earn an income.  On top of that, plant and animal species can flourish once again (the Sumatran tiger is now a regular visitor). With over one hundred farmers on the waiting list and eager to start, Gula Gula is planning to expand its reach in the coming years by adding a minimum of 20,000 acres to the Food Forest.







Join the movement

By off-setting the unavoidable CO2 emissions in the Gula Gula food forest program, every company or organization (large or small) can join and support the movement. We offer individualised CO analysis so you gain better insight into ‘the ecological foot print’ of your organization. After CO analysis, your company can decide to off-set any unavoidable CO surplus.

It is also possible to support Gula Gula for a longer period of time by directly investing in the Food Forest through one of our customized investment options.
