Rain, hunters and landslides

By Sari Bernardo | CEO

Hi friend!

While we keep dreaming big, about a future where children would learn how food is grown naturally, what gourmet dishes can be grown in a forest and how rich bio-diversity is a treasure we all should start investing on, we are still significantly short on funds to get this dream implemented. Of course, purchasing a forest land is not a small investment, and we are aware of this.

So we take this opportunity to inform you about the forests during this winter season here in Central Portugal, where the climate change has not been kind to the forests and its inhabitants. Disappearing wildlife is a global problem, and Portugal (apart from protected areas) is not displaying a great variety of native forests where natural biodiversity could blossom. Hunting season, loud hunting dogs and screaming hunted animals does not make forests a pleasant place to go for walks. Additional worry this year has been the extremely heavy rains, causing landslides in the mountainous region, heavily manipulated by human hand - meaning mono-culture forests and landscapes where the natural capacity of soil to hold the land and absorb water is disturbed.

So, we hold on to our dream to buy forest land and return it to the hand of Mother Nature - where native flora and fauna can thrive and children can learn from these natural processes.

We keep you updated and keep our fingers crossed for a great year 2023!

Kind regards,
Sari Bernardo - CEO, Romi's Way
