As we as an organization continue to grow and find support in a broader audience, we realize we need to use current appropriate technology to develop our online and social media presence. Our current website is outdated and cumbersome to update. With a new website we hope to be grow our network of supporters and keep our community up to date on all the good work GreenWood is doing.
GreenWood is designing sustainable development for the real world. We work alongside residents of remote forest communities to help them earn more by managing their forests and creating valuable wood products than they would otherwise derive from conventional slash-and-burn agriculture or illegal logging. We employ small-scale, appropriate woodworking technologies and creative niche marketing to support good forest management and sustainable development.
Teaches men and women of all ages to become skilled artisans and producers of high-value woodwork.
Helps those artisans sell their products in local, regional and export markets.
Works with forestry professionals and communities to empower local residents to act as forest stewards and to provide a sustainable supply of raw materials for artisan production and other traditional uses.
