Forests needs diversity to maintain biodiversity

Dear friend,

Firstly, thank you for supporting our project and aim to establish an urban agri-forest for children and youth in Portugal. This project plan is very dear to us, as we believe Forests are a gateway to connect children, urban children in particular, back to Nature. Having a food-forest where children from urban areas could go and visit to learn about native biodiveristy and edible plants that the forest produces would be a crucial element for them to understand how life works and what real food is like.

Portugal is rapidly losing its native forests to commercially driven interest to grow eucalyptus and pine forests which are promoting mono-cultures in the forest. This is a killer for native wildlife and biodiversity and very alarming for the future of biodiversity in Portugal. 

We are glad to be able to advocate and raise awareness regarding this issue and hope in the near future we would get the required funding to purchase our own forest to nurture and turn into biodiversity rich example for children to see and use as an example reference for how forests should, and could, look like in Portugal.

Thank you again for your support,

Sari Bernardo - CEO, Romi's Way
