Recently, Seeds of Goodness embarked on a pioneering endeavor: planting trees with a rural desert community for the first time. During the initial community forums between Seeds of Good and the desert nomads, there was great interest in planting fruit trees despite the challenge of the desert climate.
While acknowledging the difficult climatic conditions, the community recognized the significant contribution of trees to a balanced ecosystem: providing shade, conserving water, and promoting positive environmental impact within the area.
Local farmers took up the challenge. Keen to start farming, Seeds of Goodness supported farmers by planting 1,000 fig and pomegranate trees. The Seeds of Good team worked closely alongside these farmers during the process, providing resources and support to ensure the success of the project.
Despite the arid conditions, these farmers demonstrate determination and resilience, driven by their passion for a greener future. They understand that the presence of trees will not only benefit their immediate surroundings, but will also have a lasting impact on the wider regional ecosystem.
The project also has economic potential. The abundance of figs and pomegranates provides the community with a valuable source of income, as they can sell the fruit locally or even explore regional and international markets. The economic stability associated with these markets will empower the community, and allow them to invest in other projects as desired.
When fruit trees take root and thrive, they will become a source of pride and hope for nomadic farmers. The transformation of the once barren land into a vibrant grove will become a symbol of resilience and the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
