This tree planting project has many benefits to STANR, CATUC and to the world at large. CATUC thus, joins forces with others such as ANAFOR, in the fight against Global Warming and its effects. This farmland will serve the students of this STANR in many ways including practical demonstration, research etc. It is also worth noting that, this is not the only farmland that CATUC has reserved for STANR. STANR has other farms in Bamenda especially those that are used to keep animals. More on this soon.
