Native Seeds Team Returns to Uganda

WildFF’s Native Seeds team has landed in Uganda for our second phase of restoration and capacity building with our partners, the Wise Women, Mon Ma Ryek of Gulu. Right after landing on the ground in early October, our team had face-to-face meetings with agency and partner organizations in Kampala before rerouting to the Gulu community. This was a warm reunion that began with dancing, music and reconnecting with loved ones in the community. The native tree nurseries are flourishing, the Wise Women are establishing a solid foundation as an organization and this vibrant land is alive with excitement. Check out the video below to meet the team, to see what’s new in Gulu, and to get inspired!
