Fruit trees to heal the land
The green hills that used to surround the cities of Fez, Ifran and Oujda have turned amber. Years of intensive grazing have depleted the soil of its nutrients. Only the oldest villagers remember that their home used to be green, and cooler. The fruit and nut trees we're now planting in Morocco help to restore these hills to their original fertility, while providing an additional source of income to local communities, especially women and at-risk youth.
