On 18 November 2019, Global Hand Cameroon organized an “on-the-farm” training session on modern beekeeping and colony management practices.  Local residents attending the training included honey hunters, farmers, traditional beekeepers and tourism porters and guides.  Educational topics included the importance of melliferous and medicinal plants, fruit trees and other flowering crops that provide nectar for bees.  This is just one of many ways we are attempting to integrate tree planting, restoration of forest cover and expansion of the carbon sink in a way that is more profitable not only to the local people, but also to the entire ecosystem.
