In Mara, the extraction of resources from forests has caused local smallholder farmers to struggle with infertile soil, low water tables and erratic rainfall. Seedlings are grown in nurseries and distributed to the people that need it most. Through agroforestry systems on their farms and schools, the farmers and institutional beneficiaries are able to grow their own fodder, fuelwood, fiber, fruit and timber, and so no longer need to depend on forests for consumption or income generation.
