Welcome to your quarterly project update. Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic many of our farmers were able to continue their vital work and it's our pleasure to bring you the following information directly from the field.
Total number of trees planted:
2300 across more than 10 species of tree.
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 care of seedlings in nurseries in addition to the management of trees once planted.
Plans for the next quarter:
- Identification of more indigenous seeds or seedlings to establish in nurseries.
- Management of tree seedlings across all nurseries.
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.
