how to plant 
When Alex B arrived the village. He found the members of Bukudumira waiting for him at the usual meeting place.They had an opening prayer together that was led by Swaibu Kigoolo one of the members. They discussed how to do the demonstration about the digging of the holes for the tree planting. Alex and the members decided to go one direction.They started with Magerete Waiswa the chairperson of the group.The digging was done by herself while others were advising her how to make it better.The members told her to fill the hole with manure without stones or metals.They asked her to dig the rest of holes of the same size,length and depth of two by two by two feet.The spacing from one to another that should be the same. They also went to next member Siragi Wakudumira to do the second demonstration and this time other more members had joined them.His land is narrow and long.They advised him to plant the trees in one line.One hole was dug for him together with his fellow members. The measurements of the hole and the spacing in between from one to another was observed. Alex B besides demonstration of the digging holes for the tree planting,also intentionally wanted to know the homes of members where they stay.Together with the members, Alex managed to know thirteen homes for the members. Alex B and the members agreed together next time to continue with the exercise of checking up the members how they would have dug the holes and filled them with manure and after he left for Jinja. 

Next Visit: 2018-07-16 - Purpose: To continue with the exercise of checking how the members will be ready with the holes for the tree planting.
