As health measures from the pandemic evolve, we have been slowly recieving a few volunteers to plant trees in one of our reforestation areas. We have been particularly careful to invite family members, especially if they have children, so they can have an opportunity to be outdoors, learn about their environment, and get their hands in the ground.
We teach them about soil health with a little experiment comparing different samples, and explain the interdependence between the soil, the plants, and the animals, and how that keeps the sky clean and healthy too!
Both in the neighboring areas of SINAL, as well as in Rio, most families live in apartment complexes and other types of infrastructure without gardens for the families to safely spend some time outside. We have been very happy to provide a safe space for families to get back in touch with the environment!
