The orchards would support the agro-community to get rid of poverty through giving additional income. The orchards are an important component of the agricultural and homeowner landscape. As this could not be the major agriculture activities and it is only seasonal. It would enhance the income of the women family. Apple, almond and nut etc are the important horticulture fruit yielding plants. As we are promoting farm ponds this would enable the organization to watering the horticulture plants properly. Trees & Bees is your best friend when the farmers need help at the intersection of Mother Nature and their home (or yard).
