During a recent visit to Maluwu club to see how their fruit tree nursery is progressing, the club chairman Chesdel took us too see some fruit trees that his grandfather had planted back in the 80s. One of them was a grapefruit tree and it wasn’t look before one of the club members was up in the tree to get some of the fruit to thank us for our visit. Although Chesdel has some citrus fruit trees, he became involved with the club as they don’t have access to papaya, avocado and mango trees. He is excited to working with nine other local community members to raise 2,000 fruit tree seedlings this year.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
