rainy seasonSeeds are typically planted in nurseries a few months before the onset of the major rainy season. The trees are then transplanted once the rainy season begins, as the water is necessary for keeping the young plants alive.
dry seasonThe dry season is an extended period of little rainfall, low humidity, and high risk of water and/or rivers drying up. Some locations will also become prone to bush and forest fires due to the lack of moisture in vegetation.
nurseriesTree nurseries are established, either with plastic pots or directly seeded in raised beds, to grow the trees we will be planting.They are taken care of until they can be transplanted at desired sites when the rains arrive.
transplantingSeedlings are taken from a nursery (in a plastic pot or as a bare-rooted tree) and replanted in a new, permanent location. Transplanting occurs once the rains become consistent.
seed harvestingOnce the trees have matured, their seeds can be collected, thereby eliminating the need to purchase any. This collection can be in the form of a few individual trees, or a larger Seed Bank, depending on the scale of need.
seed purchasingSeed purchasing occurs when there is not a local supply of desired seed. Purchase can come from a variety of sources, but ideally is from a local farmer we are working with who is producing them as an additional source of income
