Thank you very much for your support to our project improving the biodiversity in our rainforest. We are happy to report that our project is going well with the attention of donors focusing on the issue of climate change and how they can help via tree growing and the nurturing of forestlands. We are situated in the tropics and biodiversity is very important and the need to improve our forest resources is paramount for the survival of those dependent ofn the forest resources. We intend to provide small seedling nurseries in the villages and your assistance is indeed very crucial. For the next months we aim to establish 2-3 small seedling nurseries so that transport of the seedlings is minimized. We have problems with mortality of the seedlings during transport. Again thank you very much.
Thank you very much for your generous support to our project improving the biodiversity of our rainforest. This reporting period we continue to promote the growing and culture of heirloom crops comprising vegetables, root crops and fruit and timber trees. These crops have tremendous value in terms of increasing biodiversity but they are slowly lost and taken for granted as they are replaced by hybrid varieties. There is a need to continually promote them. In our experience we found out that they resist insect and pest infestation and they are climate-resilient. They taste a lot better too in the case of vegetables. We plan to produce seedlings and seeds in large quantities and provide them to farmers. Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much for your continuing support to our initiative improving the biodiversity of our rainforest. In our interaction with farmers during field visits and in providing technical assistance to them, we found out that there is a hesitancy to plant and grow trees because they need to get income in the short term. We try solving this situation by advocating the growing of vegetables together with the planting and care of trees because they can derive immediate income from the vegetable harvest. With the tree growing we focus our effort to let farmers grow trees that give fruit and provide them with immediate income. So in this case we promote the growing of mulberry for example because it grows well in the area and in 6 months farmers can already harvest fruits and make this into jam, wine and sell as fresh fruits. We convinced 12 farmers to do this system and hoping we will be able to gain more adopters. Thank you very much.
