The Fence, Tree Planting and Garden Project will provide a much needed first step toward reforestation and alimentary security: a fence. With free-range livestock, the only way to sustainably plant trees is to put up a fence.  Whether it be for a family or on a plot of community land, each fence will give the Plateau community a boost toward reforesting their community. A fence also enables families in the community to start small gardens in their yards. While the drought has devastated the larger gardens year after year, a small garden next to their house, and the means to water it consistently, would provide a family with nourishment through these hard times.

Purpose:

  1. To fence in land so that trees can be planted and small subsistence gardens can be planted and sustained.
  2. To provide a way for young people to get involved in Lemuel’s work on the Plateau without falling into the pitfalls of entitlement-creating handouts or insignificant busy-work.

Goal:

  1. For families to have a small garden close to their house that can provide some level of nourishment when their larger gardens don’t produce.
  2. To advance reforestation by protecting plots of land from livestock and providing for the care of the young trees.
