Project Report | Oct 8, 2019
Helping the environment, one leaf at a time.

July to September 2019 was another busy quarter for our farmers. Whilst they had a break from planting seedlings this was by no means an easy quarter as many attended training and prepared nurseries ready for new seedlings. 

Around 90 farmers received training on nursey management and GPS survey methods in order to accurately measure their plots to ensure efficient use of the land for plantations. 20 farmers attended from Ruvuma, 20 from Mgambazi, 20 from Tulo, 20 from Choma, and 10 from Kisosa.

In addition to training, a group of farmers from Kisosa also established a new nursery with indigenous tree species including Bridelia Micrantha, Syzigium Guineeense, and Ficus Sycomorus.

The focus of Q4 will be as follows:

  • The continuing development of a carbon curriculum
  • Establishment of new seedlings with Choma group (spice and fruit trees)
  • Internal inspection by group members in November
  • External inspection by Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania in December
  • Follow up on tree management in the field
  • Nursery establishment at Kisosa (for indigenous species)
  • Follow up on nursery management (Choma group)
  • Pricking out the indigenous seedlings tested in an open nursey
  • Measuring farmers plots (with a GPS)

As a busy quarter awaits us, we wish to thank you for your continued support. With each seedling planted you are developing local farmers, inspiring young people and helping the environment, one leaf at a time.
