Limuru District Tree Planting


Tree Planting Report

The Nairobi District is the largest of all the KHS Districts due to its location in Kenya’s capital. The Kenya Horticultural Society – Limuru District Centenary Celebration marked a historic milestone in the rich history of the Kenya Horticultural Society. The special event was celebrated in style with a magnificent Tree Planting ceremony that took place on Friday,
March 24, 2023, at the historic Uplands Forest in Limuru, Kenya.

The celebration brought together a total of 88 participants from various organizations, including the Kenya Forest Service, the local Community Forest Association, and the Kenya Horticultural Society – Limuru District. The energy and enthusiasm felt throughout the entire forest was palpable, as everyone came together with a shared vision of creating a greener and more sustainable future.


The tree planting ceremony was the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the rich legacy of the Kenya Horticultural Society while creating a lasting impact on the local community and the environment. The messages shared by the local community stakeholders were an inspiring reminder of the importance of preserving and nurturing the environment for future generations. The Uplands Forest with its serene and tranquil atmosphere provided the perfect backdrop for this momentous occasion. As the participants dug their hands into the soil, there was a sense of unity and purpose as they planted a total of 662 indigenous trees. These trees, representing the hopes and aspirations of a more environmentally conscious community, will thrive and grow into a vibrant forest to stand the test of time.


The tree planting ceremony was not only a celebration of the past but also a commitment to the future. As the trees grow, they will provide a valuable source of oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide, and contribute to the overall health of the environment.

The KHS Limuru District Centenary Celebration was an event that will be remembered for many years to come. The tree planting ceremony was a symbol of hope and renewal, and it demonstrated the power of working together towards a common goal. It is through initiatives like these that we can create a sustainable future and make the world a better place for generations to come. Embers are comprised of keen gardeners, professionals, houseplant enthusiasts and those that wish to broaden their knowledge of plants. 


We meet at least once a month for a garden tour, talk or activity and also hold other events such as screening of documentaries, art workshops and more. The Nairobi Committee also organises workshops for members and gardeners (at an extra cost).
