In 2022, the young people will build a nursery to grow coffee plants, fruit trees and forest trees from seed.  This will reduce the cost of buying plants.  They will build a shelter to protect the seedlings, using local wood.  They plan to grow 1,000 tree seedlings in their first year, including oak trees, avocado, lemon, and orange trees.  The trees will be interspersed amongst the coffee bushes as a way of diversifying agricultural production and providing valuable shade for the coffee.  The value of the project is twofold: to increase food production and promote reforestation.  The cost of the project includes three kilos of tree seeds, seedling bags, compost and building materials.
