Summary: 

WFP staff member Asal Esfahani and village head Emom Pirov examine a plot where pistacchio tree seeds are planted. The pistacchio plots, high on the mountainside, are cultivated by 25 families, who travel the eight kilometers from their village by donkey. Up here, the trees can survive on rain water alone once they are established.
