Planting fruit trees in Amazight villages of the High Atlas

On March 5th, GDF participated in the distribution of 2400 cherry trees and 800 apple trees in six communities of the Imnane valley.† Organised by the High Atlas Foundation, the initiative was supported by local authorities, village associations and local NGOs.† Over 300 households received between 8 and 20 trees to plant in their agricultural terraces.† The fruit production will enhance local livelihoods, and the mature trees will stabilise the terraces and prevent soil erosion.

Youziou Mohamed, a farmer and horticulturalist from Asni, taught villagers how to prune the fruit trees once they grow.† Hadj Hassan El Ouizi, owner of a plant nursery in Ghmat, donated 50 quince trees to primary school that GDF is helping to build for communities of Isdars and

Tlat n’Chaout.
