Breadfruit Project Update- Trees & Water Well
We have exciting updates to share about the Guinea Breadfruit Project!
Our team members on ground at the Kissidugu Farm in Koukoudé have been diligently caring for the nursery and trees. Each day they transport water by motorcycle to water the trees in the morning and evenings which is not efficient or cost effective. Fortunately, we are developing a water well (pronounced “cole-oyn” in susu). Thanks to our generous donors, we are working towards making water available on site for the nursery and farm. Once the water well is installed, we will begin planting native trees as supportive companion plants to the soon-to-come breadfruit agroforest!
Pictured above are the tissued culture trees after two months of growth. You can see they have lots of new leaves and a slight nitrogen deficiency (yellowing of the older leaves). Photo taken April 02, 2022
