I'm a farmer. Looking to plant mango trees on the farm. We currently plant the mango seed in the soil directly during the rainy season. But it takes 7-8 years for trees to start bearing fruits. One mango sapling costs 70/-. We have a lot of open areas to plant mango trees as it is the most loved fruit of them all. Eaten by kids and people of all ages. Mango trees last for a minimum of 25 years and they contribute to the growth of the farmers all their life. I'm raising the funds so that I can plant a minimum of 1000 trees on the farm. I have currently planted 100 last year with some bamboo and teak. But planting 1000 trees will be beneficial for nature. I have tried approaching different NGOs for fruit trees but I haven't gotten any response. I'm trying to work my way towards agroforestry. So I hope a little support from mango lovers would be great. Hope after some years I can invite you guys to eat some mangos. Thank you.
