Getting it done - nursery table prepping

Down in the Forest Something Stirred.... 

Remember that? Well, things are certainly stirring down in our forests. We've managed to secure fencing materials for     the first farmers which are now in place, our tree seedlings are ready to go, each property has its individual plan so that we, (and the farmers) know exactly which species of tree to plant, in which soils and on which parts of the property.

Now all we have to do is wait for the rains. And they can't come soon enough! It's been terrifically hot here (as well as in many other parts of the world,) and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief when it dawned grey and damp yesterday. So if the  promised storms really do arrive, then we can go ahead and get the planting going. 

There are more exciting things in the pipeline too. Due to the success of this pilot project, we are planning to scale up. More farmers, more trees, more water. More impact on mitigating the effects of climate change. We have recently been included in a pilot scheme to plant trees for carbon offsets. Our nursery manager is hiring an assistant so that he can produce more tree seedlings. And so that we can download some of his encylopedic knowledge of all things tree related. Our students are helping make more seed tables.

So it's all good! And we couldn't do it without you, dear donors. Thank you for your support and stay tuned for the next instalment of the forest water project. 

Rainforest best to you all,

Toni, Gui, and the forestry team
