Reforestation

Negros Nine Reforestation Project

Reforestation

The 12 hectare farm has a good water supply from a natural spring in a small area of forest on the property. In order to protect this valuable resource forestal land surrounding the farm has been acquired by buying the rights of the “owners”. This land has been mostly cleared and is not suitable for cultivating. Hardwood indigenous varities, local to the area, are being planted to build the area into a mini forest of around 75 hectares. This will help prevent erosion, protect the water sources and bring back the native species of plants, birds and animals that have all but disappeared. The members of the coop are undergoing seminars on agro forestry and bio-diversity. They are also being encouraged to plant tees in their own farm lots, both for their personal use and for the environment.

Great Wall of China eat your heart out. We are out to challenge you! Instead of spending money on cement and barb wire, which can get lost, we decided to use local materials of which we have plenty, stones and human labour. This wall will be a fence, boundary marker and fire break all in one. The money that will go to build the wall will now benefit the organic coop members.
