There are fruit seed species endemic to Morocco that are nearly lost, such as apple, carob, fig, grape, pear and plum. Meanwhile, most rural people are below the poverty line, and biodiversity is threatened. Further, we don’t know the active chemical ingredients of these unique Moroccan varieties, and there are medicines and natural remedies too that would be lost if we don’t act to cultivate these fruit trees. We are acting: in the photo, every ten centimeters in length and width of the land all the way to the white structures, we can plant one seed. After two years, the young trees will be transplanted and given to farming families, cooperatives and schools for their orchards and yards. Millions can be planted after just several years. The product will be certified organic, then processed at a new facility also at this site and sold globally. The land in the photo below, in Ouezzane province, belongs to the Department of Waters and Forests. We need only financing to start.
