Andrés and María are our most recent restorers. They joined the project after taking part in the workshops we provided in the community of Mushullakta, where they live.
They now understand the precarious state of our environment worldwide and want to turn their farm into a regenerative one. They have already begun to produce organic fertilizers to plant with, and are collecting seeds from endangered trees at a reserve nearby, which they will sow on their farm.
Restore 6 hectares in the Amazon rainforest
Why is this important?
The vast biodiversity in South America’s tropical rainforests is under threat. Farm-owners cut down the forests to collect wood or to make space for monoculture farming, using chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which contaminate the rivers and the soil.
