Planting fruit and nut trees is a popular way that local farmers can improve the productivity of their land. Through this project community-based self-help groups, with the help of Tree Nation and Friends of Usambara, we have developed Fruits tree nurseries and train participants to graft their own high-quality fruit trees. These can then be sold for a profit or planted to enhance their own farms. The project is focusing on three crops (mango, avocado and macadamia nut) which have high nutritional value and sell for a good price in local markets. Plant with us on this platform.

Preserving Biodiversity in the Eastern Arc Mountains rain forest is the primary goal of the Usambara Biodiversity Conservation project in Tanzania. Additionally, key issues to be addressed are reversing the serious deforestation around Forest Nature Reserve, a critical need for woods and construction materials, the need for environmental conservation education, and extreme poverty alleviation through agroforestry.
