Seeds gathering
Dear donor:
We are very happy to inform you what we have been able to do thanks to yoyr help.

Eventhough pandemic changed the project's pace as the schools are not completely opened, we were able to continue thanks to the parents who agreed to help and take their children, and thanks to your donations that have been used to visit the communities and set the area in Na Bolom to open a seeds bank.
We signed an agreement with the state highschools in order to start 4 nurseries and one bank seeds in the are of the lacandon forest, close to Montes Azules. 
We opened the first seeds bank in our venue so we can start gathering seeds and teaching the visitors how to do it. The result is a growing interest from other communities to get involved.
We also renewed the nurserie at Zinacantan as it stayed closed for almost a year beacuse of the pandemic. We work there with the Organization Yo'onik who has an after school program for kids. The children are already attending so we are working with them. The seeds season is already starting so we have done the first campaign to collect seeds and will have more in the next months as every species has its season.
In Zinacantán Vicky decided to take the nursery in her hands and started teaching the children how to gather the seeds and keep them in order to start the germination project. While de nursery was closed she continued taking care of the plants and gave them to children to plant them in their parents' properties. We have been training her to continue with the project and helped her to grow it.
So this year we will have 3 Seeds banks working and 7 nurseries.
We have already finished the reforestation season and planted around 60,000 trees in the highlands of Chiapas. We are already working in the production for next year.
 
 
With your help we will be able to do more and continue working.
