A farm boundary established by farmer Abdallah
October to December 2019 was another busy quarter for our farmers. No new tree seedlings were planted but many of our farmers attended training on nursey management and GPS survey methods in order to accurately measure their plots to ensure efficient use of the land for plantations. A total of 90 farmers attended training in Q4 including 20 farmers from Ruvuma, 20 from Mgambazi, 20 from Tulo, 20 from Choma, and 10 from Kisosa.
When they weren't attending training Chemkeni Kisosa group continued the management of their tree nursery with indigenous tree species such as:
- Bridelia micrantha
- Syzigium guineeense
- Ficus sycomorus
Twimanye Choma street group continued with the management of remaining seedlings in their nursery.
The new year has arrived and brought fresh motivation to continue this valuable work throughout 2020 and the focus of Q1 will be as follows:
- The continuing development of a carbon curriculum
- Payment for Carbon offset to eligible Farmers (our Tree Planting 'Heroes') following external inspection
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.
