12 and counting!

We are excited that every pouch we made this season came from our adopted trees! Just think - bark was striped from these trees, and within a year it will grow back to be stripped again. Peter and the guys will strip it again, pound it, and then I will get to use the bark for next season's products! It's truly circular!

Peter, Stephen, Denis and Paul spend the last few months identifying trees in the community around Bukomansimbi for the adoption program at Bukomansimbi Organic Tree Farmers Association (BOFTA). Shout out to my good friend Fred Mutebi for launching this!

Check out the Google Map link for each of my 12 trees. All trees are mapped, it just takes time for Google to approve the added locations! More will be added as they get approved!
