First planting in Gewocha!

Here, project manager Adamu is shown kicking off the first planting in the new Gewocha Forest project with a demonstration.

Afterwards, 63 community members got busy planting seedlings over 7.2 ha in a communal site near Mana village.

Mr Habesh, the village head, told us how the community is standing together to restore Gewocha Forest for a better future for their children, mindful of the mistakes made by their grandparents. “Gewocha Forest gives us food, shade, water, feed for our livestock and bees, and much more. We will save it; it’s not too late,” he said.
