Environment Agroforestry is the future of national security

Agroforest are not only more sustainable then standard crops, they are also more secure, and nutritionally diverse.

Agroforests can minimize many natural disasters, and provide cover from home man made destruction. They provide homes for wildlife, food for life, and more jobs for people.
