As much as Agriculture remains the backbone of the Kenyan Economy, all citizens need to create an environment that favours it to improve food security. One way of doing that is by growing trees to ensure sufficient rainfall, cooled environment and shading in dry areas reducing water loss by crops.
The entire tree growing process starts at the tree nursery where seeds are sowed to produce seedlings. Tree nurseries require intense labor for proper seedlings growth.
Dedan Kimathi Foundation continues to commit diligently to the fight against climate change. The Foundation team of environment conservation volunteers continues to tend tree seedlings at the Foundation Central tree nursery in Kinangop; Nyandarua County.
“We must support the government in averting climate change negative effects. We are growing close to 1 million tree seedlings in our tree nurseries meant for donations to public institution,” said Ms. Evelyn Kimathi ;Dedan Kimathi Foundation CEO in a previous interview.
