Our Future

A retired employee of the farm was an officer of the Anti-Poaching Patrol of Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCAA). We know first hand the pressures of urbanisation - heighten animal and wood poaching of NCAA.  The eight gardens on the estate include indigenous medicine plants (cared for by the African Living Spa) many of which are becoming endangered with deforestation and over collection. 

By including travellers in our efforts to assist the community with tree planting erosion control we are inspired by the work of such organisations as the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group which presently focuses on Tanzania's other important forests, the Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forests, an area that does not enjoy the world’s attention such as the NCAA.  Their achievements are documented in the video links, left.

We celebration the tradition of Gibb’s Farm assisting the community with reforestation. Thousands of trees have been planted over the years.

Tree Nursery

A tree nursery with hundreds of young tree saplings (predominantly native species) are planted on the farm and in the community and private forest reserve to control erosion and reforest the environment.  Over the last 15 years, much of the farm estate forests have been restored with such panting, in part as a demonstration.   Today we have helped the neighbours plant trees to control erosion in their shamba farm.
