As has been the case over the years Green Care Association (GCA) has continued with its field and practical work by collecting some local trees for its nursery. Most of the seeds collected have been sown in anticipation for germination and planting come May 2018, start season for tree planting. Seed collection has been a very reliable approach to sustaining Tree nurseries than buying. Most of the seeds collected are bee friendly, medicinal and economic value like the Croton and Prunus africana species. Right now GCA is working hard to advertise to institutions and individuals the species of trees availble for eventual planting during the wet seasons. One of the official visitor Mr Paschal from Tatum to GCA was quick to say aloud " I never could imagine for once the quantities and varieties of Trees in your nursery and above all the attached benefits after your introduction and explanations. I am happy, very happy for your good nursery. Thank you."
Because GCA has over the years sustained the nursery, many tree species that were near extinct or endangered are now common around to find to some degree. A source of inspiration to the community. We are therefore very grateful to GlobalGiving donors who have help to keep us moving on through their wonderful donations. GCA is proud of you.
As has been the case for the last Twelve years Green Care Association (GCA) has continued serious work at its Tree Nursery and has been supplying trees of various species to the Local Councils and institutions like schools and managers of community forests and water catchments. This time around the thousands of Trees in the nursery have either medicinal, economic, fruit and ornamental values. Nursery work is all year round by GCA staff and volunteers some of whom are local or from overseas. Its for these reasons that the Mayor of Kumbo Council upon visiting the nursery recently declared “ My Council is going to do everything such that the trees are bought and planted around, especially as enrichment of Kumbo Council forest”. The nursery which is based in Shisong is accessible by Car and nearer an all season source of water. Its thanks to GlobalGiving donors that GCA has been able to buy a good variety of seed species and other nursery requirements. GCA shall is very thankful to Global Giving donors.
For over five months, we have not been able to submit any reports. This is due to Internet shot down in the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon. We deeply apologize for this.
After completing the building hosting our Agricultural Training Centre, the outside walls and the veranda were lacking finishing until recently. The outside walls and the veranda have completed. This has given the building the beauty it deserves. All this is thanks to generous donations from GlobalGiving. One of our neighbours, Mr. Joseph remarked ‘I can now appreciate the full beauty of this building’.
After this completion, Green Care Association is hoping for a fruitful year at the Agricultural Training Centre.
