The region continues to be flooded, so the planting of trees continues to be suspended. We continue with our nursery hoping that the weather improves so that we can plant. With the community we have given talks and training to make them aware of the importance of nature and the way in which we must preserve it.

CorpoAyapel supports local artisans with the sale of their handicrafts through our website www.corpoayapelartesanias.com Now we want to support them with the cultivation and planting of the seje palm, which is where the input for the handicrafts is obtained. 

We invite you to know our e-commerce and support our artisans with your purchase 
 
With your donations we will keep the nursery ready for the new plantings. The nursery needs daily care such as watering the plants, removing the badly, fertilizing and pruning

Ayapel is in crisis! The entire region is flooded due to the overflow of the Cauca River, the mightiest  in the country. We have been completely flooded for 2 months, for this reason the planting of trees had to be suspended.  
 

Before the floods we planted 1,500 more trees for a total of 3,500 trees this year. 

 

We continue working with our nursery and planting more plants, but we must wait until the water goes down to restart the planting. We have approximately 3,000 trees ready to be planted.  

With your donations we will keep the nursery ready for the new plantings. The nursery needs daily care such as watering the plants, removing the badly, fertilizing and pruning

The planting of new trees in Ayapel can only be done in two seasons a year due to the natural movement of water levels.

At the end of April, the first season began, so last month we planted 2,000 trees and we are planning to plant another 2,000 trees this month.

The sowings are carried out with voluntary work from the community, that is, the community contributes their time and work to move this project forward.

The trees that have been planted are mainly cedars, oaks, kapok trees and Orejero.

In the nursery we currently have 3,000 growing trees for future plantings.

CorpoAyapel has a tree nursery where local species are planted, watered and maintained. This nursery is key for the project becasue this is where our staff makes sure that the trees have the right conditions to grow strong. The goal is to oversee their growth, and once they are ready to be planted, take to the wetland.

For CorpoAyapel to plant trees, they need to be produced in the nursery first.

During the last months we planted kapok, cedar, mangrove and guayazan. They are ready to be taken to the wetland. See pictures.

CorpoAyapel's tree nursery is being maintained as planned and our staff are dedicated to its maintenance. There are now hundreds of trees from the nursery ready to be planted.

During the month of July, 6,000 new trees were planted in Ayapel. This process was done with the community, volunteers and local farmers that believe in the importance of planting trees as way to help with the rehabilitation of the ecosystem that has been greatly affected by illegal mining. 

One of the youth organizations that helped in the process is "Jovenes por Ayapel" (youth for Ayapel) 

This message from the community is very impactful and explains why this is important:

"Imagine if trees could give us WiFi, everybody would plant trees as crazy and we could end de-forestation, unfortunately they only produce Oxygen, which is what we breath”

 

REPORTE EN ESPAÑOL

Durante el mes de julio se sembraron 6.000 árboles nuevos en Ayapel. Este proceso se realizó con la comunidad, voluntarios y finqueros locales que creen en la importancia de sembrar árboles como forma de ayudar con la rehabilitación del ecosistema que ha sido muy afectado por la minería ilegal.

Una de las organizaciones juveniles que ayudó en el proceso es "Jóvenes por Ayapel"

Este mensaje de la comunidad es muy impactante y explica por qué es importante:

"Imagínate que los árboles dieran WiFi, todo el mundo plantaría árboles a lo locos y acabaríamos la deforestación. Lástima solo produzcan el oxígeno, que respiramos"
