The HAF-Fes Team organized last Sunday a tree planting event at Azrou, with students from Al Akhawayn University and the village association at Ain Aghbal. One of the professors from Al Akhawayn University, Dr. Duncan Rinehart, participated in the day. Professor Rinehart is a former colleague of HAF President Yossef Ben-Meir, when he was a faculty member at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at AUI.
HAF distributed to the farmers 2590 fruit trees: 650 pomegranate, 400 grapes, 1500 almond, and 40 fig.
We planted some trees with the local farmers, men and women. Professor Rinehart was the first person to plant a tree. The farmers were so happy to receive the trees without cost; because of the trees planted, the farmers’ land will gain more value.
It was a rainy day, but even with that we had a good start for planting the trees on the community’s land.
