Tajikistan families learn simple watering system

Summary: 

With training from the Tajikistan Forestry Department, families in the village of Marghzor learned a simple but effective watering system: each sapling is strapped to an empty cooking oil container, which is pierced at the bottom and filled with water. The method reduces vapor loss and irrigates the tree gradually, helping to keep the earth moist.
