Casuarina Planting at Gazi Primary School

7 years since the Gazi wood lots were planted, and this week we are measuring them to assess which trees are ready for harvest! Great to be a part of Mikoko Pamoja team carrying out this work!

Gazi Mangrove Project

Row of Children PlantingYesterday, 193 students at Gazi Primary School participated in planting nearly 300 Casuarina seedlings on school grounds.  These seedlings will supplement the 3,000 trees recently planted as part of the Gazi Mangrove Project.

The students learned that Casuarina trees are hard wood trees that can be used as a substitute for mangroves in building materials and fuel.  The children will be responsible for tending to the seedlings on campus, to ensure that they grow into healthy, hardy trees.

Here are some pictures from the day’s events.
