The community mushroom centre is now a reality given that Green Care (GC) is able to cultivate and experiment mushroom in the centre. More and more community dwellers are becoming interested in mushroom and its by products, as they can now buy fresh mushroom, Mushroom juice, ask related questions and above all part take in trainings organized at the Centre. One of the beneficiaries ‘ Miss Violet happily declared ‘ Thanks to GC resource centre, I now know so much about mushroom, especially concerning medicinal properties” . While still fund raising to complete the Verandas and part of the ceiling, GC is very grateful to Global Giving donors for the wonderful support she has been receiving. We are proud of Global Giving and hereby wish to once more extend our appreciation.
During the last few months Green Care Association ( GCA) has been working very hard with construction work at the Mushroom Centre. For this reason two of the bigs floors were cemented. This means that two third ( 2/3) of the floors has been cemented. As soon as we are able to have more funds we shall embark on completing the remaining floor, complete the plastering of walls and ceiling.
However we are already cultivating mushroom in one of the rooms while making efforts to complete the works. Also GCA will be offering some trainings on mushroom cultivation in the month of July 2016 to some groups and interested individuals. This is because of the fact that the work so far done is very encouraging. Reason why one of GCA local volunteer Mr Ndzegha said “ I like this mushroom house, especially the design from inside. I want to imagine that upon completion GCA will become one of the biggest mushroom farmers in the region and even beyond.”
GCA is particularly grateful to all Global Giving donors for their outstanding contribution which is helping a great deal to improve our rural communities.
Mushroom house construction
For over four month Green Care Association (GCA) has been making efforts and fund raising to construct its community mushroom house next to the tree nursery in Ndzenshwai quarter of shisong village. The house upon completion is going to give the opportunity to train locals in mushroom farming, a practice that help create jobs and improve the lives of many rural people. It shall also serve as a demonstration farm for lesson and farming practice. Thanks to GlobalGiving funds, GCA has been able to acquire a site, construct foundation, erect the walls and roof the house. What remains now is finishing the ceiling, plastering the walls, cementing the floors and equiping the sterilization unit and other requirements.. After the final nail on the roof one GCA veterans worker Mr Donatus said "am very happy to have been part of the achievement for my community".
