With the ever increasing supply and purchases of undrained Honey, Green Care Association (GCA) has been able to gather huge quantities of organic honey and Honey chaffs from remote farmers some of which she previously trained. She is adding value by extracting Honey wax from the Chaffs. This is giving farmers the opportunity to harvest honey and bring to GCA at any given time for payment. The wax is then extracted from the chaff, cleaned and mould into candles and other shapes. Mr Romaric one of those trained in wax extraction happily declared ‘am going to make good use of the knowledge and wealth from honey wax extraction’. Green Care Association is thankful to globalgiving funds which is enabling her acquire plenty of Honey and its by products. The funds are improving GCA to become a big supplier of Honey wax for the local and national market. We remain proud of GlobalGiving friends I would be grateful to have some more support..
Having been working in the domain of tree nursery for over a decade now, Green Care Association ( GCA) has been enjoying the privilege of working with many institutions who solicit assistance in issues concerning Trees. It is in this light that (GCA) had opportunity to educates Students on Seed collection, Seed preservation, Tree Nursery and out planting and above all the values of Trees. This time around it was the turn of students of Islamic High School Kumbo and Government High School Shisong. These were student of Science Clubs who were practically drilled on setting up tree nurseries and Tree out planting. Other Lessons presented also included seed collection, Tree seed nursing techniques, Out planting and values of most of the trees.
Thanks to Global Giving friends we able to use donations to sustain our Nursery Project by buying Tree nursery material and equipment.
For over a decade Green Care Association have been working on the promotion of Tree Nursery and Out planting in Community water Catchments and Forests. These efforts have help to stabilize the water table and improve biodiversity in the areas concern. Some of the trees planted have medicinal, cultural and ecomomic values like Prunus africana, Polysia fulva, Cordia dichotoma, Trema guineensis and many other species. Some of these trees have been seriously attacked by a parasitic plant Mistletoe. These Mistletoe help to make it difficult for the main plant to grow. It is for these reasons that Green Care Association decided to eliminate the parasitic plant by recruiting guys to cut down the Mistletoe, which so far remains the best approach to eliminate it. Thanks to Global Giving funds which enabled us to register some success in this domain. The project is attracting public attention and response. We remain very grateful to our Global Giving donors.
