Welcome to Our Forest
Families are given seedlings to plant on their farms. When these trees mature, they provide a regular harvest which sustains their daily needs and also creates an additional source of income.
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.
