Yearly, MicroMissions organizes a tree-planting activity and this time around, we focused on understanding how to nurture seedlings before planting them.
Buhay Punlaan is a nursery of native trees at the Caliraya-Lumot Watershed in Lumban, Laguna. It covers a 2-hectare area and serves as a learning laboratory and direct response to the shortage of native tree species in the country today.
41 volunteers went to Lumban and collected and planted 300 wildlings. Kuya Ken and Kuya Kiko taught us the different stages of preparing the seedlings before planting. This activity was a holistic approach to understand how one wildling should be taken care of.
After going through the different stages of nurturing, MicroMissions went to the Japanese Garden where Kuya Ken showed us how to spot and collect a wildling.
This mission is in line with Haribon Foundation’s Rainforest Organizations and Advocates (ROAD) to 2020 – an environmental conservation movement that is committed to restoring Philippine rainforests using native tree species to sustain the provision of ecological goods and services through an informed and engaged public.
Another sustainable mission accomplished!
