Growing seedlings for reforestation

Sometimes a picture or two says it all, if you know what you are looking at. Voilà the photo above. (Which can actually be translated into English as “look and see”.)

But there is more to the pictures, than just rows of seedlings. In our last report, we talked about relocating the tree nursery next to the schools. The point of this move was with two goals in mind: greatly increase the area to grow tree seedlings and actively involve the students in caring for the young trees to be.

To our utmost delight, the new tree nursery area proved already to be too small. As you can see in the pictures, they moved into the Mango Forest next to the school to grow more seedlings. With the tremendous success of our improved cookstove project, the demand for seedlings for reforestation has skyrocketed. (To participate in the improved cookstove workshops a comittment to reforestation is a requirement.) If we need more trees, we need more growing space.

With the onset of the rainy season, the time for tree planting is approaching fast. And we hope to be ready to meet the demand.
