Ichuga Tree Nursery

Nanyuki, Kenya

By Jeremiah Kimani Karanja, 1 June, 2007

Ichuga Maendeleo is a self-help group made up of members from five villages within Marura location. Central Division Laikipia District. Our constitution is attached. It is a branch of Ichuga Maendeleo Self Help Projects IE Merry Go Round. Hens Project & Goats Project. The tree nursery is within a plot of one of our members who volunteered to give us on temporary basis. It is about 50m x 100m situated along Nanyuki Sweet Waters tented camp near Mungetho Shopping Centre. So far we have 4,000 seedlings of different species in stock. The aim is to conserve environment within our area as the place is semiarid. We are now asking for any well wisher IE the Green Belt Movement, to come and buy our trees and let us plant them in the Mt. Kenya Forest.

We are as well asking for more donations to buy our own plot, so that we can enlarge our tree nursery and other projects. Welcome dear well wishers.

Yours Truly, Chairman
