When Alex B arrived to the village ,he found some of the members of Bukudumira waiting for him at the usual meeting place.They had prayer together,that was led by Alice Babirye the treasury. They discussed how to move for the mission of checking up with the members of the progress of the digging of the holes for the tree they will plant.Alex B and members decided to go in a direction of those that needed advise both concerning the holes they dug and those that to dig.They checked with members like Hadija Mugoya,who dug four holes but not yet filled them with manure.The members advised her to put in manure to the beam of the holes before mvule seedlings are delivered to her for planting. They came to a family of Fazira Bakaki staying on a family land without boundaries how they can plant mvule trees. They advised to plant more musizi than mvule since,musizi take few years to be ready to be harvested.They also advised them to meet as family and decide how they should utilize their family land, for the project of the tree planting.The members that dug the holes are had not yet filled up with manure were asked to do it, and that the manure should be without stones and metals.They checked up with fourteen members. They could advise each as the found what is lacking with them about there holes for mvule tree planting. Alex B besides looking at the holes,also intentionally wanted to know the homes of the members where they stay and then go meetings. They members asked when the mvule and misizi seedlings will be delivered,but Alex B told them to ready with the holes.
