Description: The 4-H Million Trees Project - LIBERIA gives 4-H youth in rural Liberian villages the opportunity to learn about trees in class, and raise 10,000 seed nurseries in an outside "science lab." Trees are planted at the school and in the community. Some trees are sold to raise funds for the next crop so the tree nursery becomes a sustainable business. Income also pays for books, supplies, and uniforms.
