WRUA Member Rusi Chelangat filling a potting bag with soil:

"We live along the river and we use the water mutually with the forest. We have come here for the purpose of planting seedlings so that it will rehabilitate the forest. We even want to start another tree nursery near the river so that in future we leave a legacy for our children, that they learn their medicinal plants from their parents. We need financial support to start many indigenous tree nurseries."

"We would benefit from an exchange visit to see what is happening in other areas, so that we also come and plan with that knowledge in our activities."
