Indigenous plant nursery

Seed propagation at Letšeng

Letšeng undertook to assist the local community members in the Khubelu valley with the establishment of an indigenous plant nursery. The project aims to have the communities sell indigenous plants to local projects and businesses, thereby generating income for the community in a sustainable manner. The mine provided training to community members, which included:

conservation of endangered plant species;

propagation of indigenous plants;

establishing an environment conducive to plant growth; and – nursery management.

The community is in the process of securing the correct infrastructure for the nursery, and the project is well underway.
