Mvule Community Development 
Lesson Taught
how to plant 
Abraham and Alex met fourteen Buluvu community members and the purpose was to teach the community how to plant Mvule trees, the size of holes and spacing them. They moved around checking some member where they found one member who showed them one Mvule tree he planted and he said that he will plant some more three from Kibo. They found another member she had just finished building her dish rack and she was proud to show them, they encouraged her to continue encouraging her neighbors also to do the same. They went to the meeting in the center and Abraham told the members that last time he told them to get a middle meeting place whereby everyone will be comfortable because the members in lower part they do not what to come to the center because of the distance. Alex B thought them why they need to space the Mvule trees, he told the meeting that from a Mvule tree to another has to be thirty meters which is ninety feet. He added that this is because a Mvule tree grows big and they need plant crops whereby. They need to put manure in the holes before the trees. The holes the size has to be 2 feet x 2 feet and 2 feet deep. They are going to start digging holes and putting manure. They are going to discuss how they will be checking trees and those who will be responsible for making sure they are kept well.
