Here is a wonderful story about Regenerative Farming on a personal level. At the Yelm Food Co-op, we are always looking for companies that practice it. Like this couple in Brazil, they are making a real difference in our world.
(In Brazil, this couple planted 2 million trees in 18 years, returning 172 bird species, 33 mammals, 15 amphibians, 15 reptiles and 293 plant species.
The whole world should know them. This is Lélia Wanick and Sebastião Salgado
The couple decided to start the Terra Institute, a small organization that planted 2 million plants and revived the forest.
“There is only one creature that can convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, and that is a tree.” We need to replant the forests. ”
Using only local plants, the couple rebuilt the entire ecosystem from scratch and the area flourished significantly, allowing the fauna to return; thanks to their work, Lélia and Sebastião saved dozens of endangered species.
“The earth was sad as I was, everything was destroyed. Then my wife got a fantastic idea to replant this forest: all the insects, fish and birds returned, and thanks to the new growth of the trees I was born again.)
