Trees Planting

It was year 2009 where a one person tried to rise-up an idea of tree's growing.At the beging was so simple because we were able to come together as a group.The doner was able to direct us on how to start and he gives out seeds.There after we were able to plant them and look after. After wards when the trees were ready to be planted from nersery,we were able to plant them to different areas. At the time of two to four months we were watering the crops but due to weather changes the crops started wethering(dry up)the were affected by pests and mostly by drought.
