Plant A Tree
Seedlings for a family
While much of Heifer's work involves livestock, our holistic approach to sustainable development hinges on also providing a wide variety of trees to partner families.
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.
