Editor's Notes

  • The participants come for two days and one night every two weeks, over 3 months, so the Rimba Ecolodge is feeding and accommodating the 7 participants and 2 leaders.
    We did not pay him, though the tree-planter participants and leaders and Lodge Management are paid a very small amount from the Forest Management Training Centre Project donations.
