TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY MODEL COMMUNITY BAMBOO NURSERY

INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR BAMBOO AND RATTAN

why bamboo
Why bamboo?
  • Bamboos grow more rapidly than trees and start to yield within three or four years of planting.
  • Plantation establishment requires minimal capital investment and builds upon the inherent plant-cultivation skills of local farmers and foresters.
  • Bamboos can be harvested annually and non-destructively.
  • Bamboos are excellent for rejuvenating degraded lands and protecting against soil erosion.
  • Bamboos may easily be intercropped with shallow-rooted crops.
  • As well as the culms, all other parts of the bamboo plant can be used in rural livelihoods - shoots for food, leaves for fodder, and branches for items such as brooms and for firewood.
what is a community bamboo nursery
What is a community bamboo nursery?
  • A community bamboo nursery is a cooperative venture between community members who all play a part in running it and all benefit from it.
  • As a larger unit than would be feasible at the individual level the nursery has more leverage in accessing inputs and selling its outputs. It is also able to use the full range of relevant skills that are available within the community. In this way the nursery becomes much more than the sum of its individual parts.
  • Community bamboo nurseries have been very successful in the Philippines, where local technologies have been developed to meet specific demands.

some salient facts
The community bamboo nursery

should be market oriented, otherwise

success will be unlikely.

The enterprise requires suitable

support services and infrastructure to

be in place in order to operate

properly.

If infrastructure and support services

are lacking, anchor groups can be

put in place to supply the required

services and nurture the enterprise to

maturity.

Some salient facts

The development of suitable large scale bamboo propagation techniques has been pioneered by M.J. Caasi, (and others) whose techniques are widely used.

Some pioneering members of the community willing to participate.

A small amount of start up capital.

Access to expert advice and assistance in the early stages.

Establishment of a community business infrastructure.

Proper linkages to the purchasers of the young bamboos.
