Reforesting volcano slopes

In the pacific lowlands of Nicaragua your searches are helping to reforest one of the world’s largest volcanic mountain ranges, as well as tropical lowlands around León. We use a landscape approach to stop soil erosion, restore water sources, and empower farmers by developing a more sustainable subsistence model.
