Notes
Abraham met fifty five Ikumbya community members and they selected the committee that will help to mobilize the community for the meeting. They have seven members on the committee and they come from different corners of the village to ease the mobilisation. They went to nearby place and found a man who is preparing his land for growing sugar cane. Abraham advised them not to grow sugar canes unless they have bigger land to grow food crops, he told them that many grow sugar cane and end up not having food at home. Sugar cane takes eighteen months to harvest and that is a long time for waiting until one gets the money to buy food.He told them to grow more food crops because those who have grown sugar cane will come and buy food from them. They discussed that a tree is everything as it helps with fire wood, construction and ends with a coffin which goes with us in the grave and that means we start with trees and we end with trees.
