The Forestry Commission in conjunction with the Green Institute have trained communities surrounding Chirinda Forest on apiculture (beekeeping). Forestry Commission Spokesperson Violet Makoto said the commission also donated 250 beehives for Masheedze, Chagonda, Dimire, and Muwango villages as well as the Mt Selinda High School for their projects, adding that communities can derive benefit from the forests resource without destroying it. She further said these projects are meant to involve communities in the continued protection of the forests.
