PUR Projet focus in the United Kingdom is on promoting and implementing sustainable food production through agroforestry models that help to preserve biodiversity and restore ecosystems. 70% of the land in the United Kingdom is farmed with intensive monocultural farming leading to ecosystem degeneration. Developing agroforestry systems in the country is therefore critical in delivering broader conservation objectives.
PUR Projet and the Woodland Trust, one of the most famous charities in the UK, have been operating Smart Planting since 2013.
