Ever since the beginning trees have furnished us with life’s essentials; oxygen and food.As we evolve so do their values in the provision of other necessities such as shelter,medicine,tools and fragrances.
Trees are an important aspect of every community take for instance the Kikuyu and the Mugumo tree.Our streets, parks, playgrounds and backyards are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment.
Did you know that can actually make tea from trees.I am not talking about shrubs(i know you are familiar with herbal tea from hibiscus,chamomile and moringa). I am talking about herbal tea from a tree.Well wondering what the tree is?Ever heard of sandalwood tree( genus Santalum).
Apart from being used in the production of fragrances,medicine and timber,the tree is also used to make tea which is very tasty.
Going round the various stands i encountered beautiful carvings from bamboo(displayed by Kenya forestry research institute) and nice set up green house by Starke ayres.
It was a beautiful and knowledgeable experience.Looking forward to next year’s trade fair.
