Social capital

β€˜To be is to be related, for relationship is the essence of existence.”

We will generate social capital for community resilience. Through our widespread planting of food-forests and organised land-regeneration initiatives we strive to add educational and social value by facilitating new connections between people, plants and living landscapes. We want the realisation of abundance accessed through food forestry, community gardening and small scale organic farming to shape a new social and economic culture. A culture that heals the earth and (re)empowers people to join it.

Ultimately Old Tree stands to sow the seeds of a restorative culture, through a web of connections it can make around the world, building beneficial relationships to create the synergies in the human world that we can see abound in nature. We see the accumulation of social capital as the foundation of this kind of new productive network.
