After much planning and preparing, we are on schedule for the implementation of the fruit tree nursery in Akraich of Amizmiz, outside of Marrakech in the Al Haouz province.  Architects have designed the layout of the nursery. The area has been cleaned out, approximately 50 truck loads of earth and fertilizer has been delivered and spread onto terraces. A drip system expert has joined the team and installation of the irrigation system is currently being installed, and the well is currently being deepened by about 50 meters.  
Surrounding communities are well engaged in the project, and the Moroccan Jewish community of Marrakech has been an excellent partner. In fact, we at HAF are signing contracts for two more parcels of land for community tree nurseries. 
When the planting is complete by February, we will send press releases (in English, French and Arabic) with the message of diverse partnership, shared prosperity, and unity.  With your help, we can utilize this new system and space to its full potential. This will literally chance the lives of community members, bringing them a sustainable source of income for the first time.
