Blog 9 – November 2009

On Saturday, after a few hiccups which we finally achieved our goal of planting a few native species to help with the global movement “350”. As the image demonstrates, and thousands like it all over the globe, 350ppm of carbon dioxide is deemed the safe level for humans to live on the planet as we know it.

Act now, and reduce your carbon footprint.

Our action for the day was to native Alisos, Acacias and Yaguales (local names) around a small plot being regenerated for organic agriculture at the Fundacion Brethren Y Unida. The soil is in a pretty bad state and so it took as a good while to get the holes dug, but with some careful maintenance over the next few months, and hopefully some rain, they will be flourishing come summer.
