Delta Cultura Tree Nursery started in February 2022. It is financed by the Daniel Schlegel Environmental Foundation (DSUS).
The nursery employs 3 people (two men and one woman) and has the following goals:
- Planting 1000 trees per year
- Push back invasive shrub and tree species so that more water is available in the groundwater reservoir.
- Educational work regarding climate change
- Improving the microclimate in Tarrafal
The trees grown, exclusively fruit trees (mango, cashew , lime, etc.), are distributed to interested families, the community and also to farmers. Delta Cultura covers the entire cost of rearing.
Information events are held four times a year, for which flyers have been designed and printed. These show the importance of trees in combating the climate crisis.
