Welcome to your quarterly project update - it's our pleasure to bring you the following information directly from the field:
 

Total number of trees planted:

1020

 

The following species were planted:

200 x Bridelia micrantha (Misumba) 

166 x Acrocarpus

140 x Cinnamon

107 x Accacia

100 x Pinus

100 x Sedrela

The number of farmers who received training:

20 farmers in Ruvuma

20 farmers in Mgambazi

20 farmers in Tulo

20 farmers in Choma

10 farmers in Kisosa

The training provided to these farmers covered the collection of more indigenous seeds and seedlings, plucking them out into polythene bags or planting them directly into the field. Training also covered the testing of indigenous species purchased from farmers at Bustani ya Tushikamane in open nurseries, in addition to the transplantation of seedlings and the establishment of new seedlings.

 

Plans for the next quarter:

- Identification of more indigenous seeds or seedlings to establish in nurseries.

- Measuring the size of farmers' plots using GPS and an evaluation of their progress.

- Development of a new carbon curriculum. 

- Establishment of new spice and fruit tree seedlings with farmers from Choma.

- Plucking out indigenous seedlings following testing in the open nursery in Bustani ya Tushikamane.

 

To you, a huge thank you:

With your support this scheme has motivated farmers from all 5 areas to plant an incredible number of trees, safeguarding the forests of the Uluguru mountains. Your continued support for this project will help us continue in our efforts to reduce greenhouse gases, in addition to reducing poverty for local farmers, ensuring greater economic security.
