According to government figures, two-thirds of the country could be affected by an imminent desertification process. As residents and dependents of this land, we needed to do something about it. Six years ago we started a lifetime project to increase the biodiversity of the soil and bring back the Mediterranean forest to this land using permaculture as a framework. We aim that our 20-hectare property will continue to be a laboratory and inspirational source for others who want to face directly the negative consequences of climate change.
We have been working intensively the last years and we wanted to stop for a moment and review the impact we have created in this land. For that reason, and also to reach out to other important stakeholders like local authorities, research centres, funding bodies, farmers), we decided to build a biodiversity baseline. Here you can find about all the process and preliminary findings.
