We believe that communities must become more resilient to the effects of drought and other changing weather patterns. One of these ways they can build resiliency is to plant trees, which can stabilize the soil, direct water back down to the water table, offset the damage from deforestation, and provide food and medicine. Trees are planted in deep wells (known as the potholing method of planting), which uses water efficiently and effectively.

In the future, we would like to offer workshops in conservation farming techniques which minimize soil disturbance (ie. no tilling), maximize water used, and promote a diversity of plant species.
