OUR NAKURU VALLEY CARBON OFFSET PROJECT
Since 2009, Land Sheriffs’ has invested in our carbon offset and sustainability project in the Rift Valley near Nakuru, Kenya.
Land Sheriffs takes a practical approach to carbon offset, leaving aside the debate about precise measurement of offset carbon. We have teamed up with a Church based non-profit community group in Nakuru, dedicated to helping local young unemployed Kenyans. Jobs have been created to plant and care for trees on land in the Rift Valley.
In the region of 6,000 trees have been planted already and are thriving, with a commitment to plant a further 7,200 in the next six years. A diverse selection of native trees are now growing and being nurtured by the former unemployed in an area ravaged by deforestation. Great care has been taken to minimize the negative impact on local farms.
