Collect and Plant – Reforestation Work

COLLECTING & PLANTING CONTINUES

MNS volunteers have spent the last 6 months collecting seeds from Lubuk Semilang, planting them in newly made seed beds at Ismael’s nursery and, more recently, replanting saplings from seed beds into transportable bags for final planting at a designated reforestation site.

Thanks to Ismael’s friendly and open attitude, his knowledge of local plants and his clear vision of what needs to be done, the work has been fun and informative and it has been wonderful to have so many children along, as this is another type of seed being planted!

Many thanks to everyone who is continuing to attend – there is a great team spirit and positive approach which is wonderful to be a part of, and which is so valuable in achieving the project’s aims.

The next Collect & Plant will take place Saturday 6th November, at 5.00-7.00pm at Ismael’s nursery.

There will probably be just one more collect and plant before the dry season kicks in. This last session will find us planting the largest saplings in their new habitat. The date is yet to be confirmed.

Please inform Michelle on 012 458 9051 if you and family or friends are intending to join this next outing.
