Planting 4,600 fruit trees
Thank you for your support!
Stories from the Field
Women-led tree nurseries are developed through a three-step process. On the first training day, women are trained in how to set up a small plant nursery. A month later, and after a visit to their farms by the extensionists has taken place, a second training on fruit tree grafting and budding takes place and, finally, the successful new farmers receive grafting equipment and tree stock as they complete their training.
Proud community members from the different zones of Luanshya successfully finalized a training by WeForest and the Forestry Department in Forest Law application. Certificates were handed out during this official ceremony, making them Community Forest Guards. With their knowledge and practical experience, they will support the protection of the Assisted Natural Regeneration plots in Luanshya.
