LIBENLIHA VENTURE

Libelinha Venture was purchased in May 2017 and the wildfires that devastated the area happened in June of the same year. This started an Eco-restoration project increasing the size of the land from 4 hectares to 15 hectares.

 

In October 2019 3.5 hectares of land that the fires had passed through were cleared with the implementation of reverse terraces to assist with water penetration into the ground.

 

In November a team of 8 people planted 3000 Oak and Cork Oak seeds on the slopes between the terraces, 10% of which have germinated and survived the first year.

 

In the summer of 2020 the process of regenerating the top soil was started in preparation to plant the syntropic lines in the winter of 2020 & 2021.
