Nearing the end of March, 2011, Camino Verde is pleased to announce that we are getting very close to reaching a few of this project´s main goals. First, and most importantly, we have planted over 900 trees in the first months of 2011, and are poised to finish planting 1000 trees very soon. In total, we have planted around 50 tree species this year, many of which we have never planted before. Part of the area planted is the first part in the development of Camino Verde´s botanical garden. So far, 40 tree species represented.
In additional exciting news, we are beginning to move on the purchase of 40 more hectares (100 acres) of land on the Tambopata River in southern Peru. We expect to have finished the purchase process by June or July at the latest.
In short, our work is moving forward as planned. We are grateful for your support and looking forward to sharing news of the completion of the next phase in our project very soon. Thanks again for your interest in Camino Verde!
