New Trees and New Hope In Rwanda!

Each year students spend a class session planting tree seedlings at the Art Of Conservation project’s designated wood lots. They ask the school directors to set aside a secure place to plant a selection of indigenous and agroforestry tree species. In the past, their seedlings have been trampled by grazing cattle, stolen, and dug up to make way for potatoes, so this year they wanted to be extra careful.
