The month of August 2017 brings a landmark for the BJF: we are on the way to materialize the first two nurseries of indigenous trees for the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor. Along with our technical reforestation partners Bioflora & LERF, we have carried out field visits to Caseara (Tocantins) and Santana do Araguaia (Pará) in order to budget and design these nurseries in close partnership and full support with the landowners.
The areas to construct the nurseries have been identified in Santa Juliana and Santa Fé farms. The start to build a network of seed and seedlings providers in the region has begun! The goal is to enable a forest restoration network by involving local communities. The final budget and planning will be ready by November 2017.
