Tree Planting

By a male, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Tree planting My name is Peter, I am a farmer But my farm is close to a catchment area. Sometimes during dry season, I use irrigation to plant some vegetables for sale. But since last year, I never planted any vegetables because there was no water any more. I was invited by our community Development worker at the D.O's office for a seminar on Agro-forestry. Funny enough, I found a solution to my problem after going through the teachings planned by an N.G.O in our region. I realized on my farm I had 2 big trees that were consuming water, i was advised to cut them down and plant the local trees. They said its good in retaining the water table. I have seen am improvement since those are the trees I planted. Read more.

This also applies to other member of parliarment from other regions thus the finance minister and his team should always investigate how the money is always spent. Read more.
