Indigenous Tree Seedling Collection – A Call for Partnership

We would like to let everyone know that twice a year before the rains we will be buying tree seedlings from the Communities. This will provide a small but much needed income to the people who live here and an important stock of hardwood and indigenous trees for reforesting badly degraded areas.

The seedlings need to be at least 6 inches long (15 cms) tall and can be presented to us in any container ….old water bottles, old plastic bags, or even a coconut shell. We will collect the seedlings from various collection points around the communities, these collection points and dates will be decided closer to the time.
