Trees for Christmas
Do you need to buy a meaningful Christmas present?
Why not consider giving a gift of trees to your friends and families?
Do something wonderful to help reforest the slopes of the Rwenzori Mountains.
Trees that will bind the soil, provide shade for ground crops and provide a harvest of food. Through this we hope to prevent the catastrophic land slides that have killed people, destroyed homes and crops. All this compounded by unseasonal and heavy rains due to climate change.
8 tree nurseries were planted in August for the long growing season. That was an average of 30,000 seedlings per nursery and a potential 240,000 saplings planted out in November/December 2023 bringing our total from start to 804,000 by the end of this year. Thank you for your support.
Potting of seeds began at St Johns, Maliba- August 2023

Kickstart for the distribution of Cocoa, Musizi, Grevaria, and Jackfruit seedlings from Maliba Archdeaconry Nursery Bed : A Diocesan initiative in partnership with Amaha We Uganda, for environmental conservation.
Educating the children at St John's Primary School, Maliba on tree husbandry
The seeds and saplings are nurtured by people within the community until they are strong enough to be planted on the slopes of The Rwenzori, on field boundaries or interplanted with crops as shade trees. The arch deacons in the 14 arch deaconries of the South Rwenzori are pleased to be part of this initiative shared between AWU and the Bishop.
A gift of trees will make a wonderful Christmas present.
The shared plan is to have a tree nursery in every archdeaconry.
£5.00 will pay for a tree, nurtured from seed to sapling, planted out and maintained.
