Work and Achievements
2016 has been the hottest year ever. Agriculture sector continues to suffer putting more and more farmers at risk. But this is not a crisis for the farmers alone. It is our crisis too and it's our responsibility to do something for our farmers who work hard so we can eat. We need a solution that would bring out a sustainable solution.

- Food, fiber and wood for the communities and
- Shelter and fodder for the animals and birds.
What's this fund raising about?
In next 4 months, SayTrees will plant 10,000 fruit saplings with about 50 farmers.
How will the farmers be identified?
Our partner from Anantpur district, GreenTree Foundation, has been working in the area for more than 20 years. They help us in identifying farmers who have shown interest to plant fruit saplings in their land. Farmers are made aware about the benefits of agro forestry and after this only saplings are planted with them. Farmers in Karnataka and TN will be identified by team SayTrees to support them.
How will you know about the status of the saplings?
SayTrees will be sharing pics of the plantation with donors. Same will be shared 1 year from the date of plantation to show growth of the saplings.
Where are the farmers located?
Farmers are from Karnataka, AP and TN.
