FEED’s environmental volunteering projects exist to give students and other (including corporate) volunteers and members of the public the opportunity to make a real difference to the environment and gain invaluable experience along the way.
Through our partnerships, you can volunteer with environmental and conservation projects across the Philippines, to develop new skills and turn passion into positive action in the local communities we work with.
SAVE Membership ~ Terms of Reference
SAVE Members are individuals from around the world, active in various education and/or environmental advocacies,many of whom share a tradition of volunteering their services – typically patrons from the art, culture, education, forestry, fishing, lifestyle, science, sports, water and other sectors to support FEED through awareness-raising efforts, tree-planting, coral restoration and support of other Living Legacy programs.
SAVE Members are invaluable resource persons and organizations that directly advance FEED’s Education & Environment vision through the impact of their professions and life callings. They are also often pioneers, prominent and recognized change agents in their respective fields of expertise, who encourage FEED’s mission in education, environment and sustainable development.
SAVE Members support the Living Legacy program by giving their time, voices, financing or in-kind donations and efforts to FEED’s causes, receiving in turn either trees and nurseries planted in their name, or on behalf of other friends, family or colleagues.
- Student / Other Volunteer Membership: PHP550* per year, enables 5 endangered/enedemic Philippine tree species planted in your name during a pre-scheduled Students & Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) event (includes cost of seedling, tree guards, service and maintenance for at least 3 years to ensure <1% mortality, proper distancing and monitoring by local community and FEED partner forestry experts) + partial contribution to a FEED Scholar’s research + e-Certificate of FEED Membership.
Opportunities range from volunteer tree-planting with the University of the Philippines, Los Baños (UPLB), Land Grant Management Office (LGMO), Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU), to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) infantry divisions, including the 2nd ID “Jungle Warriors”, NOLCOM Northern Command (Camp Aquino), and 7ID “Kaugnay” based in Nueva Ecija.
FEED also has a number of environmental projects on the ground, where volunteers have the opportunity to plant and grow organic vegetables, plant trees in the orchard, set up nurseries and seedlings banks.
Our environmental volunteering is part of LIVING LEGACY: Plant a Tree, FEED Our Future Program – a FEED initiative geared towards reforesting large tracts of denuded indigenous wood forests and farm lands in The Philippines. The SAVE program provides individual and corporate volunteers with opportunities to live green, become more sustainable and make positive environmental choices.
ALL VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE A FEED INC. CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION.

Looking for outdoor fun with a purpose? Join other SAVE volunteers to plant trees in local forests, along national highways, and in mountain provinces of the Philippines. Tree plantings are a great way to get exercise and meet people who share your desire to heal our environment. Every new tree helps beautify The Philippines, protect our water resources and improve our air quality.

FEED hosts the tree-planting activities on the last Saturday of each month, with an average capacity of up to 100 SAVE participants.
