Austin Ng’ambi is one of the hardworking farmers in the Choma area. With two friends, he is raising 5,000 tree seedlings.
He and his friends filled the tubes and planted the seeds and now take it in turns to water them to ensure they grow big enough to be planted out later in the year.
Austin is 30 years old and has two children. He said, “I am planting trees as I want to invest in my land than sell it for someone to do the same. In the future we will have a source of firewood and be able to pay school fees for our children.”
