Help us plant 10,000 cacao trees at CONACADO Co-op in the Dominican Republic! Each time a tree is virtually planted at equalexchange.coop/asfg, we'll plant a real one!

Many of the cacao trees on the farms are old, and they have not historically done a lot of farm maintenance. This tree planting effort supports a new, holistic program at the co-op that includes things like shade management and managing farm inputs for better production and yields.

After you've planted a tree, you can also explore a virtual farm to learn more about cacao farming.
