The main activity of the Mediterranean Tree Nursery in Llagostera was growing native trees for public works : parks and gardens, squares, streets , avenues , roads, etc. . From 2004 to 2006 the business invested in exemplary facilities and was buying thousands of trees to " fatten " them until they have the size needed to be sold , a process that takes about seven years on average . Unfortunately , the crisis deeply affected the sector and many works were left in nothing.
As a result, 4,000 oaks, cork trees and holm oaks will not survive next summer if they do not receive the care they need. The loss of these trees not only means losing the environmental benefits equivalent to 40,000 m2 of forest, but that they would lose any chance of success of a company capable of competing with the best tree nurseries in Europe (in its specialty).
We need your help to save these trees.
Hope Projects Foundation, with the collaboration of the employer Emili Raset (nursery owner) proposes to save these trees , creating two jobs and giving a second chance to return the company to create jobs and wealth in environment.
Your contributions will be used to buy fertilizer and substrate, pay workers wages and electricity for irrigation pumps.
The initial contribution made by the Foundation enabled the purchase of the materials and begin work. Your sponsorship will made it possible to continue the care needed until the end of 2016. At that time, the trees will have a size and appearance which will enable their commercialization or transfer to another nursery.
We are planning to organize a party at the same tree nursery in Llagostera. The first will be on October 4th this year. And also the following autumns of 2015 and 2016 (specific dates not available) . In these meetings , the " godfathers / godmothers " will meet the trees and the nursery and also there will be experts who will teach about horticulture and cultivation of mushrooms, you'll see a vegetal charcoal cook and will participate in the festival and have a meal (paying a small fee to cover the expenses of the meeting).
