I was delighted to get a visit from Marleen Lammers last week from Greenpop, trees for Zambia and we have promised to help their scheme next year. Here’s what it’s all about:
For three weeks July 2012, Greenpop is hosting an exciting reforestation project in Livingstone, Zambia; the country with the second hightest deforestation rate in the world. They will be planting between 5,000 and 10,000 indigenous and fruit trees within the Victoria Falls World Heritage Site, Dambwa Forest, and at schools around Livingstone. In addition, they will set up workshops at schools and with local farmers on sustainable living and conservation issues. This will be the start of an ongoing campaign to make Livingstone a greener and more sustainable environment.
You will be able to contribute to this project by gifting a tree – or lots of trees – and they greatly appreciate anything you can offer. Every tree counts! Trees cost $15 each but absolutely any amount will go towards planting between 5000 and 10000 trees. you will be able to buy your tree from Chanters Lodge from about 1st March next year and we are expecting a great response!
