In the first week of January 2019 African Community Project’s Outreach Coordinator of Mumbi Community Forests presented the District Commissioner of Petauke with her copy of Mr. Garry’s Collection of Zambian Trees. My goal for 2019 is to present every school in Zambia with a copy of the book. Funding is desperately needed to fulfill this goal.

African Community Project’s program of environmental education and tree seed distribution to our Community Forests continues. Today Felix, our Outreach Coordinator in Petauke District visited Simambumbu Community Forests in Senior Chief Kalindawalo’s Chiefdom which is about 85 kilometers from Petauke town. At the meeting he discussed climate change with the members and handed out tree seeds to be planted in the nurseries across the area. They received 5,000 Moringa, 15,000 Leucaena, 3,500 Jatropha and 10,000 Pawpaw seeds. These seeds will be planted by the groups now so they can be planted out by the members when the rainy season arrives later this year.
I have just finished this book on Zambian tree species. It is available in Zambia from my colleagues. It is over 200 pages of tree descriptions, uses and other information. It is for sale in Zambia for 30.00 US Dollars per book.

This Zambian ran, community based organisation will unite all our community projects across Zambia under one body. Innocent Kalinda is one of the Steering Committee to get it up and running.
