Replenishing the planet, one seed at a time

WithOneSeed is the first internationally certified carbon farming program in Timor Leste. It is developing capacity for subsistence  communities to replant forests, build local economies, delivering practical agroforestry and permaculture training to create a more equal and just world.

WithOneSeed

WithOneSeed is developing capacity for subsistence communities to build local economies, participate in environmental education and establish partnerships to produce a more equal and just world.

It’s about climate justice, sustainable practices and achieving climate regulation at local and national levels in Timor-Leste.

Vision

Our long-term vision is to build village-based economies using environmental practices that are viable and move beyond subsistence living.

Today, Timor-Leste is an oil/gas dependent economy. This is not sustainable. Planting trees today will allow the country to have viable alternatives tomorrow.

We plan to plant 1,000,000+ trees by replicating the Community Tree Cooperative model across Timor-Leste.

The WithOneSeed model documentation will be made available to other Asia-Pacific countries under Creative-Commons ethos.

Innovation

Our approach is simple in its theory and application. We’re planting trees and planting ideas. Our innovation comes from the annual incentive payments made to subsistence farmers who maintain the trees. If a subsistence farmer has to choose between planting a cash crop or planting trees that may take 20 years to provide a financial return, the choice is obvious. However, if we can make a cash crop from trees that sequester carbon, the equation is quite different.

“To put an ‘earned’ dollar is someone’s pocket give them the power to determine their own future. WithOneSeed supports communities to move beyond charity and aid by delivering opportunities for communities and individuals to become economically independent”.  Andrew Mahar AM Co-founder WithOneSeed
