SALVEASERRA. Grupo Prot. Amb. Serra da Concordia

SALVEASERRA Our mission is to spread awareness and knowledge of environmental conservation and sustainable development with agroforestry farming techniques, to help rural rehabilitation of very low producing areas and to maintain farmers and their families living and working in their lands. This can be achieved with the introduction of a system of land occupation holistic, self-sustainable, organic, biological, renewable and permanent, balanced with the environment and the economic use of natural resources. As mission we have also to spread the concepts of citizenship and better education in order to achieve superior earnings and quality of life.

2007 plantations

2007 plantations photos, to all donors that are helping us to plant our trees. We managed to plant this year something like 1500 trees, Mata Atlantica forest noble wood trees and useful trees, 4 different palm trees types and many fruit trees and some 6 rare Mata Atlantica ecosystem fruit trees. The climate is changing everywhere in the world, so it is here in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. I finished planting the first days of February, still during the traditional rainy season, on a Friday, we had a good rain on Saturday, and now we have more than 30 days of very hot and dry days, blue skies, not a drop of rain. As it is expected no rain in the next 2 week, I will have to water then. No problem. Unfortunately it is getting worse every day. We have replant the planet to regain the ecological balance that we lost. And that is why your help is so important, because it no only helps to plant trees but mainly helps to spread the Agroforestry possibility to replant every where in the world. Thank you very much. Roberto Lamego
