Tree Nursery Development
CAMGEW nursed native forest trees good for forest regeneration and protection of water catchments. In 2011, CAMGEW developed a 10000 tree nursery of Prunus africana in Kumbo. This tree nursery was developed with funds raised
by CAMGEW members contribution. At the end of December 2011, the trees were ready for planting. CAMGEW is fund raising to plant the trees in one of the water catchments in Kumbo. If CAMGEW fail to get funds she will sell the trees to any organisation or person that is interested.
CAMGEW is also engaging in developing nurseries on ornamental plants, fruit trees, vegetables like pepper and other agroforestry trees.
CAMGEW has another tree nursery of 7000 tree nursery of Prunus africana in Oku. This nursery is developed with funds from the World Bank to rehabilitate the Oku Community forest. The trees will be planted in this forest in August 2012 in areas burnt by bushfire. We need support to continue this project when it ends in August 2012.
