Land has been identified for the first two WithOneSeed nurseries and adjoining classrooms, to be built in coming months in Baguia, Timor Leste.
The nurseries will be located in two villages called Afaloicai and Bubuha and will function for a whole-community benefit. Each will propagate up to 6,000 saplings annually for distribution to the Baguia Community Tree Cooperatives. They will create training and employment opportunities as well as providing school children from surrounding villages with a practical experience in permaculture and associated environmental sciences.
Education, training and skills sharing is integral to the WithOneSeed Universal Education model. The nurseries will help to build intergenerational capacity for the Community Tree Cooperatives.
