Planting for Community Reafforestation Project

Goshen Global Vision led the Out-planting of Native, Economic and Fruits tree seedlings by local and Cocoa Farmers in their farms to maintain natural ecological functions such as nutrient recycling, soil fertility, weed, and pest reduction, water retention, and erosion control as well as enhancing the supply of ecosystem services. In addition, growing trees in cocoa farms will provide shade for cocoa trees to maximize their yield and increase household income. Cocoa farmers will benefit from trees upon maturity by harvesting fruits, spices and utilizing and selling other products as medicine. The Reafforestation Project also involved the planting of native species and fruit trees along the forests’ fringes within the forests’  buffers by the Forestry Commission of Ghana, Western Region. This is made possible with funding from One Tree Planted in collaboration with the Forestry Commission of Ghana and Ghana COCOBOD, Western Region. GGV has Out-planted 100,000 native and economic tree seedlings, by the End of October, an additional 50,000 will be planted, making 150,000 in 2021.
