Proposed Project #2 - Agroforestry Seminars

Integral to the Trees for Tanzania mission are educational seminars that emphasize the importance of forestry and teach agroforestry techniques, tree nursery establishment, tree planting and care, and much more.  Training materials are translated to Kiswahili and are given to each participant.  In addition, a mobile classroom is constructed, and a nourishing lunch is provided.   Each seminar participant is encouraged to suggest topics for subsequent seminars.  Requests for additional agroforestry training, fruit tree orchard establishment, and reading lessons have been most requested.
