Planting Sessions on Fridays

Since the fire broke out in June and burned through 2 Ha of SINAL, we have been hosting tree planting sessions with volunteers every Friday. We receive a maximum of 10 volunteers to keep within health measures, and plant native seedlings along with nitrogen fixer seeds, such as Pigeon Pea and Rattlepods. 

So far, we have planted over 100 trees and have seen some of the burned trees come back. The rainy season has just begun and we are doubling our efforts keeping the invasive grasses from taking over the area. 

We have named the area Alfredo Sirkis Forest in honor of a Brazilian parlamentarian, a pioneer of environmentalism in the country, who tragically passed away in June of this year in an accident. 

As the area regenerates with the participation of our neighbors from the community and from Rio, guests staying in SINAL houses and entire families, we hope it will become a symbol of resilience and stewardship of our natural resources.
