DIGGING FOR REGREENING



Regreening work in Kuku, Kenya | Projects | Justdiggit

By digging 150,000+ bunds we brought back vegetation in Kuku, creating lots of benefits. Learn about this landscape restoration project!

By digging over 150,000 water bunds, we have managed to bring back vegetation in the Kuku Group Ranch, creating environmental benefits and making the land useful again for the community.

Water bunds are semi-circular holes dug to open up the hard top layer of the soil.
The bunds slow down and capture rainwater running downhills, preventing erosion of fertile soil. The water balance in the soil restores, increasing the water availability for the seeds still present in the soil. These seeds now get the chance to sprout, which means: regreening!

The Kuku Group Ranch is located in the south of Kenya and acts as a critical wildlife corridor between Amboseli National Park and Tsavo National Park. The group ranch is home to around 29,000 Maasai people who mostly depend on the land as main source of income and food.

Due to overgrazing and the changing climate, the area has become very dry, making it hard for the local communities to live from the land. Together with the local Maasai community and our local partner, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT), we started to restore this degraded land.
By digging rainwater harvesting bunds and setting up grass seed banks, we are regreening 1077 ha in the area. Until now the Maasai community has dug 150,048 water bunds and set up 5 grass seed banks, which are managed by five different women groups.
