During the 2006-2007 planting season, HAF planted over 80,000 fruit trees and saplings with rural communities in Morocco as part of its One Million Tree Campaign.
For the Kate's Jean-Gail Memorial tree nursery we planted 60,000 saplings in February 2007 with communities in the Taroudant Province. In October 2007 the grafting of the saplings took place and the saplings are thriving and healthy. We look forward to monitoring the progress of this nursery in the years to come and to continue our work with this community.
Since this community only had the capacity to grow 60,000 saplings we will be planting an additional 40,000 saplings in 2008 with communities in the Azaddene Valley of Morocco as part of this project. Plans are also underway to plant trees with communities in the Imenane and Azaddene Valleys in 2008 - our goal is to at least double the number we planted last year, planting 160,000 trees and saplings in 2008.
We thank all of you who donated to this fruit tree planting project and look forward to the many things we can together accomplish for rural Morocco.
Thanks to our GlobalGiving supporters the High Atlas Foundation planted a nursery of 60,000 fruit tree saplings with community members in the Tifnoute Valley in February. With your continued support we will raise the remaining funds for this project and plant a second nursery of 40,000 saplings in the Azzadene Valley of the High Atlas Mountains in November (when the next planting season begins).
These two nurseries are part of High Atlas Foundation's committment to plant one million fruit trees and saplings with rural Moroccan communities.
