Planting

  • 50,000 saplings are almost ready to be out planted.
  • Local farmers are learning to develop their own fertilizers through composting.
  • Black beans are nearing harvest.
  • Sweet potato sites are being prepared by farmers; sweet potato plantings will be surrounded with trees as “live fencing.”
  • Farmers are learning the techniques for tree planting on bald and degraded mountain tops.
  • Farmers continue to work in the nurseries nurturing all the growing trees and learning how to raise trees in a sustainable way.
