702’s Bongani Bingwa speaks to Chris Wild of Food & Trees for Africa this Arbor Month

Bongani is in discussion with Chris Wild, Executive Director of Food & Trees for Africa, about the organisation’s food security intervention in townships and the importance of planting and conserving trees that are threatened by extinction.

According to the World Wildlife Fund every year roughly 9 million hectares of forest disappear. Deforestation, pollution, climate change, and old fashioned human carelessness are wreaking havoc on the world’s forests. Chris is challenging communities to plant trees during Arbor Month celebrated annually in September and says the idea is to make communities more food secure while contributing to the fight against global climate change.
