  • I would like to become a seed multiplier for Functional Forests. What do I have to do?
    First of all, thank you for your interest in taking on this strategic role. We will decide which seeds you will multiply based on your geography and conditions, as well as the resources you have available. We ask that you send a Seed Propagator Request to with your first and last name, phone number and province/district information so that we can evaluate together the types, quantities, equipment and conditions under which you can propagate seeds for Functional Forests.
  • Are you establishing Functional Forests on forest land? What type of land or plot is suitable for establishing a Functional Forest?
    The focus of Functional Forests is on land that can be leased from the private or public sector. All types of land are suitable for establishing Functional Forests, but not all species can be grown on all types of land. Our aim is to design, implement, maintain and spread purpose-based Functional Forests by identifying the most effective associations within local environmental, economic and social conditions. Functional forests can serve many purposes at the same time, such as food, medicine, building material, fibre, or they can serve a single purpose, such as the production of animal feed.
  • What is Functional Forests ?
    Functional Forests, play a critical role in ensuring food security in a changing climate, while maintaining long-term ecological balance.
  • How many years after establishing a working forest can I start generating economic income? Where can I sell the product I produce?
    The establishment and management of Functional Forests is based on two basic principles. Life cycle and succession. In this context, you can start generating cash flow in a short period of 1-2 months, as the established Functional Forests contain annual species for at least 5 years, depending on the location. The time to economic break-even should be assessed on a case-by-case basis as it depends on many variables such as location, climate, species chosen, equipment, management skills, market opportunities.
  • Are there any legal obstacles I may face if I want to establish Functional Forests?
    Functional Forests should essentially be understood as multi-species, multi-year agricultural activities. In this environment, we try to revive the relationships we have established with the whole of life in the process of our evolution with the forest, and in this way rediscover our place in the whole.
