In 2022, we had a very important milestone: our first project took shape at Ouro Verde farm. The farm is located in the south of Bahia, in the Eunápolis region and is part of the Atlantic Forest. Our first seeds were planted in October and have already spread across 336 hectares. For us, starting with the Atlantic Forest has a symbolic value, as some of our scientists have been conducting research in the region for over 30 years.
Also in 2022, at COP15, a UN event focusing on Biodiversity, the Atlantic Forest was declared by the United Nations to be one of the ten benchmark initiatives for global restoration. This recognition came after the organization elected the period from 2021 to 2030 as the Decade of Restoration. The decision reinforces what we at re.green have always known: the fundamental importance of regenerating this Brazilian biome!
Our story in ecological restoration begins with Ouro Verde but since then we have expanded. Today, we already have another restoration area in the region and we are expanding into the Amazon!
