Team Ziway Roses: "We love to support the Landscaping project of IDH-ISLA"
This initiative to improve in fertile area’s started after all kind of preparations with a opening ceremony. Some of our collegues where there and also assisted in planting trees.
Unique Lake Ziway
Lake Ziway is the only freshwater lake in the area, used for drinking water, small scale commercial fishing, and small- and large-scale agricultural irrigation. Variations in water level due to irrigation is resulting in salt water intrusion of the lakes, thus heavily impacting the supply of fresh water. The islands in Lake Ziway are unique for their historical and cultural heritage.
