What is this eco-action about?
Families will plant 5 seedlings of native fruit trees or medicinal plants on their lands and will care for them applying organic fertilizers until they are strong enough to grow on their own.
These eco-actions will help these families reach a long-term goal to grow their own, native, organic fruit and medicinal trees through permaculture and have sufficient food to feed their families and sell to organic products in local markets.
Creating food forests is a fantastic way to sink carbon and restore biodiversity while assuring food security and increased nutrition/health. This restoration method will also expand to sustainable pig and chicken farming to address the community’s needs of protein.
