Notes
Abraham met twenty six Bukoma community members and they went in seven homes checking how they dug holes. There is one member called Mugere he dug ten holes, he Mixed the soil with the manure and Abraham advised him not to plant five Mvule and five Musizi because they discussed that some should not exceed five Mvule trees because they want many to participate in the program, and also if one takes many trees he or she may not take care of them well but if they are few they can manage to take care of them. There was some who had not mixed the soil with the manure and they were advised to mix the manure with the soil and put back in the holes. There was a man who did it well and it was because he was in the government program planting grafted Oranges and Abraham asked him to be advising his friends. They went and checked the bore hole because last time it was dirty but this time it was clean and the chairman said that they are saving for their borehole in case it breaks down.
