Forest fires season starting in Portugal

By Sari Bernardo | CEO

Dear friend of Romi's Way,

Firstly we take this opportunity to raise awareness about forest fires, and the fact that these are mainly linked to human activities and manipulations of the flora and fauna in Portugal. Monoculture (mainly eucalyptus and pine) forests dominates the landscapes in Portugal, and this makes them extremely vulnerable for fires. Native Portuguese forests with rich biodiversity are known to resists fires well minimising the loss of animal and plant based lives for the fires. And native, biodiversity-rich forests is what Romi's Way is all about promoting! They are not just a way to ensure native flora and fauna can thrive in Portugal, but they offer such a rich platform for edible plants, berries, mushrooms and fruits to grow that this is an exciting opportunity to connect back to Nature and realise that real food does not 'grow in supermarkets' or be industrially farmed. We would love to see a future where children learn about Life, by growing and maintaining life in practise and by growing their school meals in Agri-forest environments.

You are part of the dream, and we are holding on to it! Getting the desired land purchased is not an easy (nor cheap) task, however we know we will get there, with a generous support from good people like you.

Wishing you a wonderful June 2022,

Sari Bernardo- CEO, Romi's Way
