The turn up was great, forty women were present, the objective of the day was to demonstrate high quality energy saving jikos and the use of improved barrel kilns to carbonize selectively pruned and harvested Acacia  twigs and branches for sustainable woodfuel security.

a variety of tree seeds were on sale for only 100ksh a packet
