How We Saved an Eroded Land in Mankayan and Made It a Forest….michael a. bengwayan

How We Saved a Land in Mankayan and Made it a Forest….in 2010, I got a letter from a school principal asking for help to save their school and nearby school compound from being eroded and washed off the face of a mountain due to mining operations.  We went to see the washed off land which has become a ravine, devoid of any flora. I called on my group ATAD for volunteers and financial support and today this is how the place looks like three years of consecutive planting missions by ATAD. Thinking how i got a tongue lashing from a politician who did not approve of our intervention and his letter of apology gives me a chance to smile now and then. This year, 2014, we will go back again to plant some  more trees.ImageLandImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageHowImageImageHoImageImageImageImageImageImage
