IMPORTANCE OF FORESTRY AND GARDENING FOR AFRICAN SCHOOL CHILDREN
In The Gambia all schools can participate in a tree nursery competition. As the children are learning how to grow saplings for reforestation or for having fruit trees in the village, this is a very important activity in their education. A class in Sambel Kunda village was introduced to the way a tree nursery can be set up, using seeds of the nearby baobab trees, planting them in cans, cups or poly pots. This is one of the different aid projects contributing to the sustainable development of their village.
