These weeks, the team of Cerdeira started working on rehabilitating an obsolete shed to prepare it for a nursery. This new activity is necessary to produce new, native plants, in order to fill the areas where the invasive species were taken out. It’s another value-adding activity to ensure there is continuity in the forest operations and also to guarantee future resilience of the local forest. This also fits into the objectives of the recently constituted Associação Vale do Xisto (Schist Valley Association), where different neighbors joined their efforts to better conserve and restore the area around Cerdeira and the whole valley. Life MycoRestore’s support is crucial in embedding forest related activities into the economic activities of the area to ensure long-term success.
