Lesson Taught
how to plant 
Kalitumba village. When Alex B arrived,he was received by the Lc1 mr.James. It was the day for him to check up with community how the dug the holes where they will plant the trees. They also had a meeting with them to discuss how to make the holes on standard. They moved together and fast checked up the Lc1 how he made them. He asked for four trees and was noted that the land he has could accommodate only two,one mvule and one musizi. The challenge was that when they were taught how make the holes ,he promised that he will help the community in that process.Fred for him made ten and the size was good with the space from each other. Balazewa and Wankya also made the size was good and the spacing was okay due to the land they have for growing other crops. Dina managed to make twenty and the size with space from each other was good .The community members though they dug them but the had not yet filled them with manure. He managed to check with most of them since they were found in their gardens other weeding their crops. He was also reminding the for the meeting that took place after checking with them their holes. They later went for the meeting to discuss the challenges they had as they were digging the holes. Some members raised the issue as they found rocks before they could make the required measurements.The issue of manure was was not enough for them and asked for alternative. Alex B advised thanked them for the start and willingness of digging the holes to plant the trees.Those that had issues with rocks,he asked them if they could make like one and half feet deep. Them put manure without stone,plastic,metal and fill them on the top. Those that have not yet finished were advised the to do it . He reminded that no body will be gives trees when they do have holes ready with manure,The top soil with compost manure can be mixed and fill the holes. The members agreed with the Lc1 to check up those that were reached and attended the meeting about their holes .It will help all of them to be ready to receive and plant the trees.They were asked make mobilization for choosing the committee that will guid and lead them .He promised them that the next visit if the trees will ready will delivered to them.
