Deforestation along springs and streams in the southeast of Serra do Brigadeiro, Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest, has led to a series of challenges for the rural community, such as soil fertility loss, dry springs and water pollution. Despite this, small farmers have traditionally resisted reforestation efforts, afraid it would impact their crop yield. In our program, native seedlings and agricultural crops are interspersed in a way that is mutually beneficial for the farmers and the environment. project reportread updates from the field
