Project Report | Jul 31, 2018
Community training and healthy seedlings.

By Emma McEachan | Fundraising Officer

Welcome to our latest update!

From April to June 2018 our main focus was holding training sessions for staff, farmers and local communities as heavy rainfalls and a longer rainy season, followed by a dry period made transplanting trees in the mountains difficult.

Valuable training sessions were held regarding nursery and tree management in the village of Kisosa. The main focus of the training was the management of seedlings whilst in a nursery setting all the way through to transplantation into the field. As a result of the training, we've been able to identify that further steps can be taken to better the record-keeping of the seedlings which are transplanted.

In Choma village, we were delighted to see that one farmer has successfully planted over 250 seedlings of acrocarpus fraxinifolia and albezia rebbeck; some of the trees were planted close to river banks, and others as boundaries around his farm. The next steps for the nursery in Choma are to ensure that tree seedlings which are ready to be transplanted are taken by farmers at the right time to ensure optimal transplantation and successful growth. 

Due to the upcoming dry season, further transplantations will take place in September 2018 with several indigenous species to be included – at the moment the main trees in the area are pines, acrocarpus, cloves, and albezia.

It's thanks to wonderful donors like you that we're able to continue to educate and collaborate with local farmers and communities, introducing organic farming programmes & sustainable conservation projects to village communities in the Uluguru Mountains in Tanzania.

Thank you!
