Notes
Abraham and Alex B met forty Nawaibete community members and they received two hundred Mvule seedlings, fifty Giant lira, fifty Musizi. They learnt how to plant the seedlings by doing a demonstration with the members. Some members had not filled the holes to the level of the ground because for Mvule if a ditch is left where a tree is planted then when it rains the water logs around the tree whereby it is likely to die. They were advised to fill the holes to the level of the ground before they plant the trees. Alex B planted two trees showing them the example how they will be planting others by themselves, they have to remove the plastic bag and they have to make sure that as they plant the soil on the seedling has to be on the same level of the ground because if it goes inside the holes then the tree will not grow well. They are still working to see how they can work together as a community after the recent government local council one which left the community divided and still up to now they have not yet solved that problem. There are two parts the upper and the lower whereby they need to come together as a community. Abraham encouraged them to continue discussing because they will do more things together as a community than being divided and if they feel he can meet them, that will be good. It started raining hard and they left the village assigning them to divide the trees and plant them.
