Planting 15,000 trees around our villages in Madagascar
“My dream is to see both villages surrounded by forest and the mountain of Bevato covered with trees again, if we work with the villagers and support them to plant the 10 trees.” Dr. Ramihantaniarivo, MPH, Founder of Zahana
Zahana wants to plant 10 trees for each woman, child and man in our villages.
Based on community feedback we will actively involve the villagers as re-foresters and caretakers in this ambitious goal to plant some 15,000 trees over the next few years. Drawing on our gardeners’ years of experience growing seedlings and planting trees successfully, it is time to scale up our efforts and plant a forest.
Zahana has two experienced gardeners in each village growing trees and vegetable seedlings for the community at large (see our website.) In addition each works with the students on their school gardens. Both gardeners have become our main innovators, testing new crops in their local climate. Our tree planting beginnings date back over 5 years to 2006. - READ MORE -
