African Community Project is distributing the book free to all the schools (well over 100) we have worked with over the more than 15 years. Chumbe Primary School is part of Petauke Community Forests. Anyone wanting to help out on the costs it would be appreciated.
Hi Garry I hope I find you well. I am glad to say I have attached the photos with the book taken at our Zimconserve Nursery Project in Zimbabwe. “The book analysis of various trees species found in Zambia is a must read for everyone involved in the environmental conservation and Agroforestry industries as it gives detailed information and knowledge on many indigenous as well as exotic flora found in Sub Saharan Africa. In a nutshell l can safely say it is a treasure trove, which every keen environmental activists or student must not miss. Mr. Garry did his homework right and produced a masterpiece. Your study or library will not be complete without this collection (Mr. Garry’s collection of Zambian trees)”. Once more thanks for your support Gabriel Founder Zimconserve Zimbabwe
Grave Muleya, the Zimba District Chairperson receiving his copy of ‘Mr. Garry’s Collection of Zambian Trees’ from Passwell Nyambe, African Community Project’s Outreach Coordinator for Zimba Community Forests. After reading the book he is quoted to saying, “no gift matches the value of information and awakening that is contained in this collection". He sends his gratitude and confirmation of ambassadorial volunteerism in championing the call on responsible co-existence with our trees, to the Author.
Last week Felix Nguluwe, African Community Project’s Outreach Coordinator conducted two separate meetings on environmental issues and distributed more seeds for planting out, taking advantage of the plentiful rains in the area. The first meeting on January 25th took him by bicycle over almost impassable roads to Chikaonda Village where many of the areas citizens had gathered at the local school to discuss with Felix the effects of the changing climates and how it impacts their daily lives and to receive over 25,000 assorted tree seeds for immediate planting, most of these were Moringa.
On January 26th Felix chaired a meeting with the local Head persons of the area on climate change and the effects it is having on the people and the natural environment. Despite the heavy rains the meeting was well attended.
