 Develop a project proposal for planting 1000 almond and pomegranate seeds over five years in 1 hectare of land 

Executive Summary

This is a project proposal for planting 1000 almond and pomegranate seeds over five years in 1 hectare of land. The project aims at for the rural people and for the benefit of villages which are socio-economically disadvantaged. This project proposal includes project background, project objectives, project justification, project scope, project deliverables, project work place, project budget and project risks.

Project Background

This project is based on planting 1000 almond and pomegranate seeds over five years in 1 hectare of land. The site chosen to plant these saplings and seeds is located near United States department Agriculture’s Plant Hardiness Zones. This project has been put especially for the rural people and for the benefit of villages which are socio-economically disadvantaged. Initially, only 500 almond and pomegranate seeds will be sowed. After two years, the trees will be distributed to rural people covering at least 500 rural households. They will be then responsible for the maintenance of the tress, will put them in their orchids and will be sole beneficiary of the yields of trees. With this, the land will be empty and revitalize in the mean time. Then a total of 500 more seeds and saplings will be planted. After two years, these 500 plants will also be distributed to 500 rural households. With this, a total of 1000 plants will have been distributed to 1000 rural households. With this, by the end of fifth year and project, approximately 1000 rural households have been helped. After 8 to 9 years, these seeds will grow into beautiful plant fruits which will help the rural households to generate incomes for their families. In order to prevent erosion and desertification, different steps will be taken in this project (Paul, 2005).

Project Objectives

This tree planting project is backed with some SMART objectives. The project objectives are as follows:

1.      To provide rural households in New Zealand with a regular income source by these fruit plants

2.      To create employment for rural people in New Zealand

3.      To diversify the diet and contribute towards public health in rural areas of New Zealand

These are the objectives for this project. The project aims at providing rural households in New Zealand with a regular income source by these fruit plants. Further, it creates employment for rural people in New Zealand and intends to diversify the diet and contribute towards public health in rural areas of New Zealand.

Project Justification

Reports claim that 85% of rural households in New Zealand earn less than the national average of the country (Cattani, 2011). The low market of staple barley crops has forced the farmers to incline towards cash crops, such as fruits. Hence, this project of ‘tree planting’ has been set up with a mission of planting 1000 almond and pomegranate plants and distributing those to rural households. This will helps them get a steady income for their survival. Some other benefits of this project for rural households in New Zealand are it will create plethora of jobs for unemployed rural youth, strengthen the natural environment by planting trees that don’t require pesticides, developing the technical skills of farmers and making farmers well-versed with plant tree management (Lewis, 2006).

Project Scope

This project intends to plant 1000 almond and pomegranate saplings and distribute them to rural households by the end of the project. 1000 trees will be planted in two sets. Initially, 500 seeds will be sown followed by distribution to first 500 rural households. After that, another 500 seeds will be sown followed by distribution to next 500 rural households. The three key factors of the project are Money, Time and Quality. A budget of $50,000 is allocated to this project. The project is expanded across five years i.e. from Apr 2014- Dec 2019. The quality of seeds has ensured to be superior.

Scope Included

The project includes only helping rural villages in New Zealand.

Scope Excluded

The project will be serving 1000 rural households only and will not be planting any more trees after Dec 2019. However, the researchers will continue to provide assistance.

Project Deliverables

By definition, project deliverables are defined as the output of the project or the result which has been produced through the project (Phillips, 2003). The tangible project deliverables in this project are 1000 almond and pomegranate trees. The project is expanded across five years. Initially, 500 seeds will be sown in first 2 years followed by 500 seeds in next 2 years and by the end of fifth year, the trees will be distributed to 500 more rural households. By the end of the project, it will prove to be beneficial for 1000 rural households.
