"For a model that protects the forest and humans"
Coeur de forêt Madagascar is part of the global Coeur de Forêt project, which has been working for more than 10 years to protect and enhance forests and people. Since 2005, all reforestation and economic development projects have resulted in the planting of 725,000 trees, 253 different species, the support of 20,000 beneficiaries, as well as the development of 33 organic & fair products from forest collection or agro-forest crops around the world.

AWARENESS RAISING AMONG LOCAL COMMUNITIES
The preservation of natural resources requires a better knowledge of the wealth around us but also an awareness of the threats to them. Coeur de Forêt is therefore committed to making local communities aware of the stakes and the importance of preserving the environment.
IMPROVING FARMERS' PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES
Our experimental platform in the town of Ibity aims to offer the best production models to local farmers, both in terms of plant productivity and sustainable production techniques (biological fertilization, agroforestry, cultural association, soil conservation...).
TOWARDS A FAIR SUPPLY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
We involve local producers and make them directly involved in the preservation of their natural resources, by supporting them towards better training, structuring and visibility in the markets. Essential oils and other derived products are then distributed by our two companies:
