Marshal Papworth graduates help plant 24,000 tree seedlings in Ghana

After graduating the Marshal Papworth short course at Harper Adams 12 months ago, Joseph Adonna and his colleague and fellow graduate Owen Atindana have wasted no time in putting their new skills to use, helping to plant 24,000 tree seedlings in the Kassena Nankana Municipal and West Districts in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

The seedlings, which include varieties of mahogany, acacia, mango, cashew, neem, baobab and moringa, will all help to mitigate the effects of climate change in Ghana. Joseph and Owen have also supported Natural Assisted Regeneration Activity in Tampola, reclaiming degraded fields for sustainable agriculture.

Thank you to Joseph and Owen for putting their Marshal Papworth funded scholarships to such good use already!
