Great planting day at the Porcus Natura farm

Earlier this month our Life Terra project had one of the most beautiful planting events held in the lasts months on the Iberian Peninsula.

The event took place at the Herdade de São Luis - Porcus Natura farm in Portugal, and had the collaboration of Climate Farmers, an organization responsible for disseminating regenerative agriculture practices within the European farming community.

Porcus Natura is a farm where regenerative agriculture has been practiced for 6 years. The quality of its soil and the vitality of its trees are a reliable example of the effectiveness of this form of management to achieve healthier ecosystems.

During the planting event, a team of enthusiastic collaborators planted 1,000 trees in just 4 hours around an Alentejo pigs breeding system, created 20 years ago by the father of the owner, Francisco Alves. The objective of this plantation, made up mainly of fruit trees, is to create an extra source of food for the pigs, which reduces external inputs and at the same time contributes to increasing the biodiversity of the ecosystem.
