Rewilding water catchment 3 of 5.
The Bwitingi water catchment is the third chapter of the story. It consists of a water tank built over an underground spring. It used to have many outlets but with the trees removed and the area encroached by farms, it now has only one.
The catchment supplies water to Molyko, Muea and Wonia Mavio neighbourhoods.
Forest Maker Limbi Blessing Tata
“We aren’t just planting forests, we are bringing about significant positive social change on many levels. Suddenly, youths are checking on us saying ' please when are we planting the next forest'? It's awesome.”
— Limbi Blessing Tata
Planting a forest at BWITINGI will:
- Recharge ground water and improve water tables
- Regenerate biodiversity
- Allow for honey gathering
- Grow medicinal herbs and spices, nuts, fruits that can be harvested and sold by members of the community.
