Great news from our production team at Kanan Kab A.C: our first Project is totally funded. We are pretty excited about the impact that your support brought to this project. Since April 2021, when we started this campaign, we have donated and planted more than 8,671 local trees in the city of Mérida to mitigate the increasing temperatures due to climate change effects. Kanan Kab's team register 92 species produced, such as Ramón (Brosimum alicastru) being one of the most registered outputs, followed by Balché (Lonchocarpus punctatus) and Chaká (Bursera simaruba). During the month of June, 2,607 trees stood out for a greater number of exits registered. With your donation we acquired plant bags and ground to boost our production through the following techniques: seedbeds, cuttings, and raising seedlings tht help our production.
We greatly appreciate the commitment to our cause and the belief in our work team at Kanan Kab A.C. We invite you to follow our active project:
Great news from the Kanan Kab nursery in Merida Yucatan Mexico!
The plant production team at Kanan Kab A.C. where pretty bussy working hard since our last report in August. You would recall that in the past production count, we had been growing 1,500 trees to achieve our goal of plant 4,000. Between the months of august and so far in november, we have planted 1798 trees in different places into the city such as Paseo Henequenes hand in hand with the residents of the Amapola neighborhood and the Environmental Education and Culture Network and the Mérida City Council, or Los Heroes neighborhood where the citizens help us to plant several species. Besides, our tree adoption program was very helpful to commit the locals to reforest their backyards. With your donation we had exceeded the initial goal of the project and it is almost funded!
We ask for your help again! If you are interested in continuing to support our plant production, we invite you to join us this November 30 with your donation to our new project to produce and plant 25,000 trees in 2022 that will be planted in Mérida and other municipalities of Yucatan, contributing our bit and increasing the resilience capacity of the Mayan jungle. If you want to keep contributing, don't forget. DONATE to Kanan Kab this November 30 at Giving Thuesday and #MOVE A MILLION with us and the GlobalGiving community.

The more we raise, the more we earn.

Thank you very much for support Foster to plant 4000 trees in Merida! A short time has passed since we achieved our goal to start this reforestation project. We have some updates to share with you:
In May we started the production of the 4000 trees within our nursery. With your donation we acquired plant bags and ground to boost our production through the following techniques: seedbeds, cuttings, and raising seedlings. Although our nursery does not have enough personal to secure the production process, we counted with the help of 15 volunteers in this period that were crucial to aim our results.
In June we begin our reforestation process with the help of the Merida Town Hall. We planted 2,500 trees in “Paseo Henequenes”, a lineal green area that was recently developed inside the city. To secure the health of our volunteers due to COVID had rocketed on that month, the park and garden staff of the Town Hall executed the reforestation. These plantations were developed in the framework of the annual forest crusade. It is important to highlight that the reforested area have an irrigation system to ensure the survival and correct growth of the planted trees.
We still have 1,500 trees to produce and plant; however, we are sure to did the rest quit soon.
Our Kanan Kab team is forever greatful for your support!
