Project Report | Apr 2, 2024
See our Tree Planting projects from SPACE!!

2022 planting season shown as of March 2024

We are still in dry season in Costa Rica and beginnng to prepare for our planting season which will begin in May. Meanwhile, we are busy collecting seeds and producing baby trees in our tree nurseries, always  going the extra mile for seeds from rare and threatened trees. 

It really is so much fun to go on seed treasure hunts and so many people assist us in our local community. It´s a way people can participate actively in what we do while deeply feeling their own connection with Mother Nature. It never grows old and the women working in our nurseries to water and weed trees, fill bags and transplant and make bokosha compost  are earning a meaningful living while  also being part of a movement that gives back to NATURE in such a real way to benefit the future generations all over the planet.

This time of year, we also focus on administration and fundraising. We are attaching some google earth fotos recently downloaded inorder to show all of our generous sponsors how we are proceeeding with some of our projects. These fotos are from Refugio San Antonio from years 2022 and 2023 where we have planted over 5800 trees. WOW you can see the swaths from space. The greener foto you can also see some of the tiny trees poking out of the grasses and also the regeneration that we are encouraging with chopping away cattle grasses along the streams and the secondary volunteer plants for early shade. 

All the work we do is thanks to you Our Sponsors. We must admit that donations have been down and knowing that is is tough in the world, we want to give extra thanks for sticking with us. We feel the pressures out in the world and we will always believe that regrowing rainforest is a way to help every creature on earth. We all depend on the rainforest to survive. These trees breathe with us and give us healthy rain and drinking water and balanced global temperatures in these times of excess pollution and deforestation. 

THANK YOU !!
