Argan trees produce seeds used in cooking and in skin and hair care products. They are native only to the Souss region in the south of Morocco, but are endangered due to deforestation.

  • High school students in the area will plant and tend the new trees.
  • They will build a fence to keep goats in the area from eating the crop.
  • The trees help protect a vital ecosystem and foster sustainable livelihoods.
  • The trees average over 1.5 meters tall at the time of planting
