New Schools to be supported by Planting A Future

We are very happy to announce that we have 2 new schools in our programme. Currently we are helping them with clearing land to make room for orchards.

The schools are very different as you can see here:

Nazibula School

Mayobo Community School...all pole and mud building

Pupils of both schools are now clearing land. They are all willing to help. It is fantastic to see how motivated everyone is and how interested in learning about plants and fruits and nutritious food.

Also the parents are taking part in the preparations. They now make a compost dump for the school orchard. The compost manure will be used to fertilise the soil where the seedlings will be planted.

And besides working on the orchards we took the chances of integrated lessons 😉 It was a fantastic opportunity to teach the kids about measuring, ecology/biodiversity and horticulture.

Planting A Future is proud to see all this progress and how well people react to our programme. The same week we started working with Nazibula School and Mayobo Community School we heard about another school that is interested in working with us. Pupils from Singwamba School requested for mango and orange tree seedlings for their orchard.
