Planting 1000 trees, Saving 100 acres

Our new plant nursery is on the way!

Hi again friends and supporters of Camino Verde,

With your help, we have continued to move right along toward the completion of our project objectives, and I'm excited to share our most recent milestones.  You may recall that we were already able to complete the two primary goals of this project: planting 1000 trees, and making the acquisition and protection of 100 more acres of rainforest a reality.

Now we have set our sights on the expanded secondary goals for this project, and the first of these is the creation of an on-site plant nursery that will allow us to propagate 1000's of tree seedlings and reduce costs and carbon footprint associated with transporting seedlings from elsewhere.  

This month we took a big first step toward the creation of the nursery: we drilled a well to provide water to the tree seedlings.  You can find photos of the work party that made it happen by clicking here.  Next up: construction of an elevated platform to support our water tank.  In the meantime, we have acquired most of the materials for our plant nursery, and our looking forward to setting it up!  

And most importantly, we're getting over 1000 trees ready to be put in the ground when the first rains of the season fall in November.  

Thanks again for supporting Camino Verde.  This most recent phase of work has also been made possible by a partnership with the Marjorie Grant Whiting Center, and of course... by your contribution!

Warm greetings from the Peruvian Amazon!
