Plant A Tree

Seedlings for a family

Heifer Project International Inc

Regular price $60.00

Trees have many functions on small family farms. Their roots hold precious top soil in place, and the branches of some varieties provide vitamin-laden fruit--a ready source of both nutrition and income. And in regions where cooking is still done with firewood, families with trees can use fallen branches instead of purchasing or poaching from forest reserves.


Promote Fair Prices

Family farm evaluation

Sustainable Food Laboratory

Your gift of $2000 will sponsor a Capitol Hill breakfast for Congressmen, staff and U.S. Executive Agency personnel to hear directly from African farmers and agribusinesses about their experiences with AGOA and their priorities for assistance that will help them export more agricultural products.
