Notes
Abraham met thirty seven Bukoma c community members and they moved around checking how they dug the holes for Mvule seedlings, many members did not get it right especially the distance from a tree to another. They were told that the distance from a tree to another has to be thirty meters but some were making it to be ten or less and the reason being that they want to plant many. Abraham encouraged them to make sure the spacing if observed carefully because the reason why they have to do it, it is because they Mvule grows so big with the branches wide and if those branches come together and overlap then they will not use that place for any other activity like growing crops. They Mvule does not make a forest but it grows one at a place. They learnt how to mix the manure and fill in the holes as they prepare for the planting season. They are so thankful for Kibo to give them a bore but they said the village is still big with many people using the bore hole. Abraham asked them about the rumors that was going around that the government is going to take all Mvule trees in the district and they said that they are not hearing it any more and Abraham advised them to finish mixing the soil with the manure and fill their holes because the season seems to be near. There are a lot of people growing sugar cane and they cut all trees and that has caused people not to have fire wood.
