MBF Plans for Summer 2019 Reforestation Underway

After a successful overwintering season, monarchs are heading north and MBF is getting the forest ready for the next season by supporting the summer 2019 reforestation. Alternare and 30 local school and community nurseries are getting ready to plant an estimated 24,000 trees on 20 hectares. These trees resulted from the hard work of students, parents, teachers, and community members who received support and follow-up visits from Alternare’s team twice a month. In the words of an eight-year-old from Crescencio Morales Indigenous Community in El Santísimo, “We are looking forward to this summer to get a break from school and begin planting all the trees we grew in our nursery!”

Additionally, thirty-eight women and two men participated in five workshops on construction and maintenance of fuel-efficient stoves which resulted in the construction of 21 stoves, mostly built by women. Four cisterns to capture rain water were also built providing clean and potable water to the Carpinteros, Capulín, and Santa Ana Ocampo communities.

As the monarchs did this past winter, we also hoping for a successful reforestation season and to continue our support for the workshops that empower the local communities and foster sustainable practices. Thank you for supporting the forests, the monarchs, and the local communities!
