Preparing the Irrigation System
Preparing the Irrigation System

HAF had one of its best planting seasons this year, and that is so much thanks to you. HAF continues to partner with the Jewish Community of Marrakech to care for the nurseries planted in Akraich, Morocco, on the land surrounding the grave of a Jewish saint. When these plants reach maturity, they will be distributed to local community members who can profit from their fruit by selling at market. 

In the meantime, HAF's local field manager, Abderrahim, is busy caring for these trees in very hot weather, with minimal water resources. How do we do it? With drip irrigation, of course. 

Drip irrigation is a system of irrigation that has revolutionized agriculture. It requires less water than traditional irrigation and can be controlled digitally. HAF is still using manual control, but nonetheless, it allows Abderrahim to conserve the precious water resources while caring for the plants in what is currently 105 Degree weather!

HAF hopes to continue to plant on this land in the coming year, but we will have to invest in further irrigation systems. We hope to have these in place before the planting season begins again this winter, so we can assure that the trees you help to plant grow to maturity.

We will keep you updated as we make it throught the heat, but rest assured the trees are healthy and growing.

Thanks for your support.
