Six Weeks Before the Birth of a New Planting Season
The planting season, which starts Morocco in December and concludes in March, is like no other time of year. It offers a window for sowing the best of benefits this world could offer–sustenance, livelihoods, flourishing nature, and justice, for now and for generations. This precious time opens its door in just six weeks, and for the sake of doing all we can to reap its benefits, we must prepare.
The High Atlas Foundation has the enormous responsibility to transplant from its nurseries nearly one million organic fruit saplings with family farmers and schools in all regions of Morocco. And then, we must replant more than one million in those expanding nurseries.
It is truly no understatement to say that your partnership will not only help us achieve this goal for rural communities in all parts of the nation, but also the dreams of the incalculable more who so eagerly seek and need this opportunity.
If you have been inclined to give, please give now. If you have felt the urge to immerse your hands in earth, please do so with us. Tree planting is about women’s empowerment,intercultural solidarity, and youth’s opportunity.
We kindly ask, try your best to plant where you are, and with us.
Wishing you happy planting, now and forever,
Yossef Ben-Meir, Ph.D.
