Become the stake of a tree that will bear your name in a food forest in Costa Rica! Support the agriculture of tomorrow!
Mango, avocado, date palm, orange, guava, carambola, jackfruit, banana, ... It is from a selection of a hundred species that you choose the one that will proudly wear your name!
By supporting the planting of 468 trees (and this is just the beginning!), You are supporting the development of a pilot project for a food forest in Costa Rica!
Small tree will become big thanks to your support ...
A food forest to preserve biodiversity and cope with climate change.
The most effective way to protect wildlife and deal with environmental challenges is to change the way we produce our resources.
Biologist, specialized in the protection of monkeys, I am working since several years on the project that I called La Evidencia. It aims to set up a pilot project for a food forest in Costa Rica. The idea is that depending on the results obtained, this project can be taught and replicated elsewhere, in Costa Rica and around the world.
My vision is that, on a global scale, everyone should have the possibility of eating enough and healthily while preserving natural habitats.
La Evidencia, a duplicable micro-agroecosystem
Based on the latest research and methods of agroecology and argo-forestry, La Evidencia, the project that I invite you to support, is the establishment of a simple and accessible agroecosystem for the production of abundant resources, food and energy.
On La Evidencia website, here, you will find all the information about this project and the methods to design this ultra-fertile agroecosystem. You will also find more information about me: who I am, what are my motivations, my experience and my expertise, which will contribute to the success of the project.
Transplant 468 fruit trees!
The project La Evidencia sprang up in my mind two years ago during a trip in Costa Rica. During this first investigation, I sowed seeds of mango, avocado, guava, carambola, jackfruit, orange ...
The grandfather of a friend, intrigued and interested in this project, allowed me to 'squat' his land to make the first concrete step: to go from seeds to shrubs that now only need to be transplanted.
Planting seeds that will become forest thanks to your support ...
The seeds planted 2 years ago have grown well. They gave 168 shrubs just waiting to grow! Here I am, with Tito, beside the shoots invading his garden. It's time to transplant them! :-)
A 6-hectare pilot project
In March 2019, during a new exploration trip to Costa Rica, I bought a small wonder of 6 hectares of forest here. And yes, yes, it's even close to beautiful wild beaches!
The next step, for which I need you, is to transplant on the land of La Evidencia project, the 168 shoots sown two years ago, and to conjoin 300 fruit trees companions!
Trees that will make dream, or intrigue more than one: Açai palm, trees producing àraza, cherimoya, mangosteen, rambutan, nutmeg or rarer species such as canistel, mamey, argan, logan, sandalwood trees ... and much more.
100 species of fruit trees for a nourishing forest!
The food forest will include nearly 100 different fruit species! Small, medium, big ones. They will all be inter-rooted to create a mixed and biodiverse community, the richest possible.
The diversity of the forest and the agroecosystem aims to:
- Contribute to the food independence of local populations
- Recovering ecosystem services in agriculture
- Minimize the areas exploited to optimize the areas left to nature.
- To be a transplantable model to any region of the world
468 trees are looking for 468 stakes!
In order to fund the planting of 468 trees and support the launch of this pilot project, I am looking for 468 contributors, like you.
The proposal is simple: you choose from the rewards the tree of which you wish to be the stake. For my part, I will give him your first name (or that of your child, nephew, godson ... *) and I provide you with a certificate of staking. At his plantation as well as on each anniversary date, I will send you a photo showing his development and integration into the forest that will gradually be formed.
Each supported tree will embody, for decades to come, even centuries, your involvment to a greener planet and an abundance generated in harmony with nature.
And who knows? Perhaps you will have the opportunity one day to come and enjoy the fruits of his generosity ...
In any case, for now I savour yours.
In advance, thank you very much for your support and contribution!
* I will contact you so that you communicate to me the name (s) to indicate on the certificate (s) of staking.
Allocation of funds
If the collection reaches 2000 €, the 468 trees will be planted! Thank you! :-)
If the collection reaches 4500 €, we move to the development of the land.
If the collection reaches 6000 €, it is the developement of the path that leads to the forest!
If the collection reaches 10.000 €, it is the turn of the first infrastructures!
