"The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree”- Psalm 92:12. The trees are God’s great alphabet: with them He writes in shining green across the world His thoughts serene

Trees are right at the heart of all the necessary debates: ecological, social, economic, political, moral, religious. “Trees exhale for us so that we can inhale them to stay alive. Can we ever forget that? Let us love trees with every breath we take until we perish” Munia Khan said. 

We can learn a lot from trees: they’re always grounded but never stop reaching Heavenward. “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky. We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. “People who will not sustain trees will soon live in a world that will not sustain people” - Bryce Nelson.

I feel a great regard for trees; they represent age and beauty and the miracles of life and growth. “The forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for its sustenance and extends generously the products of its life and activity; it affords protection to all beings.” This quote is attributed to Buddhist Sutra. 

The advice we learn from a tree is: stand tall and proud, sink your roots into the earth. Be content with your natural beauty, go out on a limb, drink plenty of water, remember your roots and enjoy the view. When we plant a tree, we are doing what we can to make our planet a more wholesome and happier dwelling-place for those who come after us if not for ourselves. “He that planteth a tree is a servant of God, he provideth a kindness for many generations, and faces that he hath not seen shall bless him”- Henry Van Dyke.

Sustainable Development Goal [SDG] 13; whose description is to take urgent action to combat Climate Change and it's impacts by 2030, is a global agenda that has drawn attention to all whether from developed or developing countries around the globe. 

KELMA FARM which is a sphere from KELMA MERCHANDISE AND GENERAL SUPPLIERS, has unreserved zeal to conserve and  reclaim environment moreso via planting of trees. We have a nursery at KELMA for both domestic and commercial purposes. We also go an extra mile from time to time to give back to the society via Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and donate tree seedlings for planting in respective areas that are willing to plant and take care of the seedlings issued.

This is an indirect way of cleaning our town and creating a source of income to street families that has in turn made them stop a couple of social vices such as theft  and harassing people when begging.

In November 2022, Kelma Farm was awarded a tender to distribute tree seedlings to 22 Secondary Schools in Mumoni and Thagicu Sub-Counties by Equity Bank! Thumbs up Equity Bank Limited for being at forefront to combat climate change and its negative impacts in collaboration with KELMA FARM. For sure, you're a listening and caring financial partner. If everyone is moving in the same direction, then success takes care of itself.
