In 2019 a few optimistic individuals inspired by their children, started ZimTree: a small charitable project to help plant trees for Climate Action Week. In all we planted 1000 trees across the city, now we want to do more. We want to re-green and re-wild more urban spaces in Zimbabwe, making them more beautiful and extracting more carbon from the atmosphere.

We have had amazing support from the Tree Knowers & Growers, our corporate sponsors and the City of Harare. We have had excellent survival rates for our trees and the aim is to expand our tree planting potential. Please see our annual report for what we did in 2019/2020, and more detailed information on our future plans.

In order to keep building on what we have done so far, we need to start growing our own seedlings. To this end we are helping to expand the COSMO nursery in Monavale to grow 5,000 seedlings a year. We need funds to help grow the nursery so we can meet our planting targets. The money raised here will go towards:

- salaries

- watering seedlings

- inputs (pockets, tools, soil, manure)

- transport

Your support will help to make Zimbabwe's cities more beautiful. It is an act of hope for the children of our country and their future.

Over December we managed to plant over 1,000 trees across several sites in Harare. Unfortunately, with the new lockdown announced in January 2021 we have been unable to get any more planting done. Instead, we have focused our efforts on the new nursery. With the money raised to date we. . . . .
