WHEN REFORESTING BENEFITS 4 GENERATIONS OF WOMEN

Holding her infant child and standing between her mother and grandmother, this is Sakani Malunga - 4 generations live under one roof - a close kinship we have lost in the West. Sakani and her family have a 9-hectare subsistence farm where they grow vegetables and maize. Sakani recently joined the forest restoration program and had committed to return one hectare on the farm to forest through natural regeneration.

Why? The stream that used to run through her land all year now dries up for a number of months. Some of the ways trees and forests contribute to the hydrological cycle are common knowledge, e.g. facilitating infiltration of precipitation through soils to recharge the groundwater; the alternative being runoff, topsoil erosion, perhaps flooding. There is less awareness of the role forests have in actually triggering precipitation. Tiny organic particles released by trees ascend into the upper atmosphere, presenting surfaces on which water vapor can condense, thus creating clouds and subsequent precipitation. (Clouds additionally reflect solar energy back into space, providing a natural cooling effect.) These tiny particles account in part for the greater extent of precipitation over the worlds dense β€˜RAIN’ forests.

NEW HOPE: Sakani and her community are restoring forests as a way to recharge their water resources. Additionally, to increase biodiversity and pollinators for their crops and secure food supply. Food and water - simple basics which are being disrupted by deforestation and climate change. As a response to both global and local issues, the restoration work undertaken by Sakani’s community is simple, cost efficient and effective.

😒 FORGET THE DIET - Make the perfect fig and Walnut Tarts πŸŽ‰
This nutty, sticky tart makes a lovely, indulgent dessert – with earthy, fruity flavours, the delicious crunch of nuts and a rich, luxurious hint of sticky treacle with organic dark chocolate.
This fantastic concoction of flavours combines to make an instantly crowd-pleasing end to any meal!
Serve with a fresh pot of tea, or if serving this as a dessert, we recommend with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream (or pistachio gelato for an Italian twist!).

It's nearly weekend and we have something that will impress your family this weekend... and something to smile about this January...

😍RECIPE: Sweet blackberry jam tarts instantly bring back childhood memories, and summers spent in your grandmother's kitchen or holidays in the south of France. These indulgent desserts take it to an extra level though, with crumbly, buttery shortcrust pastry and a delicious 100% pure fruit spread filling.

Enjoy these on their own, fresh from the oven with a pot of tea – or for an even more indulgent treat, serve for dessert with a scoop of gorgeous, creamy mascarpone cheese.
