The wall at the Ankaramena FJKM church that was begun in October 2020 is nearing completion. It will help provide security for the new nursery to be established on the church grounds.



The Fruits, Vegetables, and Environmental Education (FVEE) program of the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (FJKM) is helping to establish a fruit tree nursery at the Ankaramena FJKM church in south central Madagascar. This nursery will produce grafted mango trees of many of the world’s top mango varieties. It will serve as a launching point for the distribution of these varieties as well as grafting techniques to southern Madagascar, an area suffering from food insecurity and the effects of climate change.
