Project status: Project in progress
Objective

Improve tree nursery facilities including better irrigation systems, better germination beds, expansion and increase of the area covered by germination and propagation beds. A large watershed water producing area will be reforested using plants from the school nursery. Improved teaching materials for the students on how to produce better quality trees for reforestation and agroforestry farms.
