Charlotte leads shea nursery in Burkina Faso

In the village of Gourcy in West Burkina Faso, 2019 Marshal Papworth sustainable agriculture course graduate Charlotte has been working with her team to set up a shea nursery.

“With my team we have been able to set up a shea nursery to cultivate 1,000 shea plants that will be planted in a forest to enrich the canopy with shea plants.

“After the establishment of the nursery, I raised awareness on the importance of maintaining the trees and especially the shea tree which constitutes 90% of the income of the women who work with my co-operative in Burkina Faso.”

Well done Charlotte and her team, it’s great to see what was learned on our sustainable agriculture short course at Harper Adams University put into meaningful practice for the future of Burkina Faso.
