SEED COLLECTION

Felix our Facilitator at Mumbi Village has started collecting Jatropha seeds for the 2012 growing season.  So far he has bought 1500kg or about 2.5 million seeds. They will be stored, packaged and distributed across Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe to our Community Forests ready for planting.  Already there is a waiting list from our community nurseries for seeds that will be planted as soon as they get them. The transport and distribution budget will need to be found quickly. Anyone interested to contribute to this will be most welcome!
