Planting 1000 trees, Saving 100 acres

Mission accomplished... again!

Dear friends of Camino Verde,

For those of you who have been keeping your fingers on the pulse of our project on GlobalGiving, you may have noticed that we have expanded-- and expanded again-- the goals and timeline of our project.  This was in great part due to the fact that we were able to complete our original goals in record time.  Thanks to your help, we hit the mark for funding, planted those 1000 tress, and saved those 100 acres of land.

And now I´m pleased to report that we have once again reached a major milestone in our project.  One of the most important of our expanded goals was the creation of an on-site plant nursery that will allow us to take this projects name of "Planting 1000 trees" and turn it into a recurring cycle.  In fact, the nursery that we´ve created with your support will allow us to propagate over 2500 tree seedlings each year!

And now comes the real work...  We still need your help to realize the potential of this extraordinary new nursery.  The part of our budget that has yet to be funded is designated for the most important and direct part of our work: the planting of trees.  As you can see on our project page, just $10 will allow us to plant 2 trees.  Why not help us plant ten, twenty, a hundred trees today?

Meanwhile, if you want to get a more vivid sense of what that tree planting might look like, we are excited to present a new short video on Camino Verde´s work in the Peruvian Amazon.  Check it out here.  (Many thanks to Camino Verde volunteer-visitor Lara Weatherly, the visionary creator of this documentary.)

Many thanks for your support and interest, and warm greetings from the Peruvian Amazon.
