Giving Nature a Voice – Greening Bare Ground
Season 02 Episode 10
Kenya experienced one of the worst droughts in memory because critics say, it has cut down its trees. Forests used to cover 30 per cent of the land In pre-colonial times. Now they only occupy 6 per cent of Kenya’s space. Helen and Kenya Mutiso want to teach Kenyans how to grow forests in their own backyard and make money from medicines, skincare products and dyes. It’s part of a nationwide effort to cover 10 per cent of Kenya’s land with trees.
