Thanks to the great people over at Tree-Nation we've been able to bring 30 local kids up the Bore Forest Centre for a 2 day educational visit. The children planted trees, learnt about the importance of tropical forests, had a guided forest walk and ate a slap up meal. Many of the youngsters often go without lunch so we made sure that for once they had plenty on their plates! Full story here.
Latest order for 17166 trees just received from Tree-Nation. Thanks very much! This significant support of more than €10,000 is a major helping hand to the community at this difficult time. The trees will be shared out amongst our network of 1400 farmer planting partners. Here, Musa our nursery nightwatchman displays some cashew seedlings to be planted with this funding.

We will supply planting tools from our community tool library and in only 10-12 weeks time we expect to be supplying most of the food needs for 5000 people.
Thanks so much to the kind people of Wales for helping the community at this particularly difficult time.
