|This is what the whole valley used to look like, with the native|
species of oil palm. Now much of it is deforested, and the villages
asked to reforest with a shorter, higher producing hybrid.
|The villagers were required to provide fencing|
and outplanting labor in return for a number of
oil palm starts based on their household size.
|Ally and Sam and four other volunteers|
came to help with the project
