In other to increase and assure regular supply of Mushroom be it fresh or dried to the local market and some partners Green Care Association( GCA) has maintained its efforts of cultivating mushroom. This is done at its recently constructed farm that is serving as a demonstration farm for the community. Its thanks to Global Giving donors that GCA constructed the building serving as demonstration farm and mushroom seed production centre. Individuals keep visiting GCA centre for advice, purchase and in some cases inquire information about how to cultivate. Recently a student from the regional school of Agriculture Mr Julius, visited and was so impressed with what he saw. His conclusion could be summarized as follows “ This is what I have been looking for about mushroom” GCA is now able to sustain for the last few years mushroom to its local shisong community and beyond and to a bigger market in Bamenda.
For close to three years now Green Care Association(GCA) has continued with its mushroom cultivation program. This practice has been going on during the dry and wet season. GCA has also succeeded in training many individual farmers as well as groups. Some have benefited seed multiplication as well. Reason Why one GCA local volunteer Rita recently declared " I now see great value with my voluntary time in GCA due to the fact that am now understand so much about much cultivation as a job from seed multiplication, management to planting, harvesting and preservation of mushroom". We at GCA are grateful to Global Giving donors whose donations helped a great deal to take Green Care to appreciable level in Mushroom cultivation. We shall for ever be grateful and are determined to continue doing our best. Thank you.
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.
