Where the tree nurseries are built.

The nurseries are usually built where the planting takes place to keep the distances as short as possible, because the mangroves with the planting bags are heavy. Many seedlings are carried by the families in baskets and bowls to the planting sites. A hard work in the heat of the day. The construction method is simple: bamboo serves as scaffolding and palm fronds as roof. Due to the many rains, the palm fronds usually rot after a short time, so they have to be replaced. No problem, because palm fronds are available in masses. The stalks of the palm fronds are taken as firewood, because most families cannot afford gas.
