how to plant 
When Alex B arrived the village,he found the leaders of Bupaluka waiting for him at the meeting place.They opened with a word of prayer together that was led by Mutooto Saul the chairperson . They discussed on how to move from home to home checking on the members on how they prepared their holes for the trees they will plant.Alex B and the team of leaders,decided to go one direction.They started with Alice Muzei the vice chairperson of the group how she is ready with the holes .They found out that she dug them too close to one another and the space in between was small. She also dug them at the boundary to the neighbour which will develop into misunderstanding later. Alex and the committee advised her to re-do with right measurements of the spacing.The rest of the members also joined us and continued with the exercise. They checked with fifteen members as some made there holes right and some not.The committee advised those that dug their holes close to one another to plant musizi since the land is not enough for mvule trees.They also advised those that dug the holes close to the roads to plant musizi since it does not spread branches like mvule.They also told them to avoid manure that has stoned and metals. Alex B besides looking at the holes,also intentionally wanted to know the homes of the members where they stay. The community asked when the trees will be delivered to them for planting,but Alex told them to first work on preparing the holes. He wished them a good time until next meeting and after he left for Jinja. r 

Next Visit: 2018-07-18 - Purpose: The members to make bylaws for themselves that will guide them in the group.
