FOREST RESTORATION FROM AN APP

ON THE CANAAN FARM

Mareilde's parents landed in Rondônia in the 1970s with only small suitcases in hand and began their family saga there. After many years of fighting "against the imposing forest", the family matriarch, seeing the damage to everyone, understood that she was not against, but in harmony with the forest and passed this vision on to her daughters, showing the potential of the oil palm trees that still lasted on the property. Her daughter Mareilde with her sisters understood her mother's message e  created an association of women  extractivists, who harvest buriti and babassu fruits for oil extraction for the production of artisanal cosmetics from the Amazon Bioeconomy.

With all that decades-long conflict, man versus nature, left sequels on the land as the main river of the property that is “drying up”, putting at risk both the production of cosmetics and the use of the property in general. The ills caused by degradation bring direct and indirect socio-environmental and economic damage to the local community, directly impacting more than 30 families. 

Upon becoming aware of this situation, we accepted the challenge of starting Mareilde's dream, of restoring the entire river that cuts through the property. This river, which in his childhood served his family so much for water supply, as in his leisure time where he competed with his brothers to see who could swim across the river, today practically without riparian forest and silted up with just a “thickness of water”. ”. We are going to start this beautiful forest restoration project at the front of the property, planting mainly Buritis, Chestnut trees, Jequitibás, Açaí, Angico among others, as the farmer wishes, who already dreams of the future fruits she will harvest, not to mention a good bath of river.

Goal: Forest restoration of riparian forest

Area Size: 1.2 hectares = 12,000 m²

Total planting: 2500 trees

Contracted Planting: 350 trees
