With all the beautiful support we received in 2020, we managed to reach our objective of planting over 6000 trees, shrubs, and bushes. Unfortunately, we are now experiencing another considerable hurdle: keeping the planted trees alive. As in many parts of the world, Portugal is experiencing one of the worst ever droughts in recorded history, and we do not have enough water to keep the trees thriving, with many dying. This has been extremely heartbreaking to witness after all the funds allocated towards land regeneration, not to mention the thousands of hours from dedicated volunteers towards planting and sustaining them.
If we are to save the trees, we need your help.
