Welcome to Andy Forest
Typical village nursery that we fund. Since we began reforesting in Haiti, funding in certain areas comes and goes and people get used to having trees to plant and then suddenly they don’t. This has caused frustration but also self-reliance or a culture of tree planting across the region where many villages organize themselves to grow trees like in the picture above. It really only requires some shared tools, manual labor and 1 penny per bag. Once people see what they are missing when we leave, they make it happen on their own.
“It is almost three years now since we planted at this place. Seeing the growing trees reminds me that the lost greenery will soon return. I’m hopeful to see some birds, chameleons and squirrels that we used to play with. I am really proud of my work and I want to help more people in my place with trees which I can personally raise with the skills I learned.” ~ young Shakila from Usambara, Tanzania.
