How Trees Help Gardens

Trees help food producing gardens in three ways:

1) Trees provide shade to plants in a hot, sunny tropical environment. Some plants like coffee beans need shade to survive.

2) Trees prevent flooding and washing away of gardens during heavy storms or hurricanes.

3) Fruit trees provide food for families and revnue when sold at the market.

Every community-led project funded by Lambi must grow trees for these reasons. The tree nurseries produce both forest and fruit trees. The production of fruit trees is both a revenue producing and food provision activity. This year the major focus has been in fruits, especially citrus, orange, lemon and grapefruit followed by mango, avocado, papaya. But the farmers also raise chestnut, calabash, pine, white pine, cedar, and mahogany trees. For the last few years, citrus has suffered with insect diseases that have destroyed many trees. There is an impetus among our partners to renew the citrus species especially lemon, sour lemon, limes and grapefruit that are part of the daily staple used in cooking and feeding in the country.
