Throw to Grow

October 8, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free – KSh1,000

Have you heard of the Throw to Grow initiative? It’s an innovative project that involves hikers using any means to disperse seeds coated in charcoal balls to repopulate the number of savannah acacia in the semi-arid areas. This project has been a huge success so far, with over a thousand trees planted on the kikuyu-Nachu escarpments. The initiative is a collaboration between Lets Drift with Seed-Balls Kenya, Miti Alliance, and Cookwell Jikos. With the rainy season approaching, now is the perfect time to get involved and help make a positive impact on our environment. Get involved and make a difference today!
