On 10th June, 2022 we launched a tree growing project at Solio Settlement Village 4 Chief’s Camp which was attended by over 500 participants. 500,000 seed balls were given to the brothers of St. Joseph for distribution to 7 primary schools and 7 villages.
The brothers are now starting a tree nursery and they intend to produce 4 million seedlings to be distributed to the entire Kieni West Sub-County, all courtesy of Mother Earth. Kenya Forestry Research Institute has promised to assist Mother Earth get tree seeds to be used in our nurseries.
We have already written a letter to the PS environment and forestry, requesting for a donation of the seeds. Kenya Forest Services in both Laikipia and Nyeri is also closely working with us. The Rotary club of Nyeri has expressed its desire to partner with Mother Earth Network in any restoration project within the area.
