Mezimbite Forest Centre

Mozambique-based Mezimbite Forest Centre is a community based programme with an integrated sustainable design, forest management and education/training centre.

Mezimbite Forest Centre was established by multi-talented designer Allan Schwarz to address the critical loss of southern African natural forests. The centre is active in a variety of fields including the production of timber products, all heirloom quality and consumer-ready made from sustainably harvested African noble hardwood; the production of non-timber forest products such as foods and personal care items; reforestation with original species; carbon offsetting; environmental damage repairs; consulting services to design products and projects in service of a sounder environment and lifestyle.
