A Russian financed our first nursery (the sign says 'Thanks Dmitry!)
We built another and ran a course in the next door town.
Dona Rosarinha (second left) financed her own nursery.
Within three months she had grown hundreds of saplings, and sold her cows to reforest the riverbank on her land.
Thousands of miles away in Recife on the Northeastern coast, our partners from Pé da Vida built a geodesic nursery at Cândido Duarte school.
The students studied physics and maths as they rigged up the automatic irrigation.
