Oct 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Student Work

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and one of the most fertile areas in the continent of Africa. One million people depend on the land for agriculture.

Sebastian Chuwa is a botanist in Tanzania. To fight against deforestation and drought, he decided to promote the planting of trees. He chose a species — the Mpingo, a tree whose wood is used to make clarinets. In twenty years, he has planted two million trees. Below is a trailer for the film.
