To restore the native forest, this project empowered local communities in ecological restoration. Local community members were engaged in all stages of project, from collecting native seeds from the nearby national park to transplanting and caring for the trees. The seeds were purchased from villagers living along the border of the national park, where they were then cared for my community members working in the nursery, before the whole village took part in the transplanting and monitoring process. Among the species planted were economically and nutritionally valuable fruit trees. Even local children were involved, volunteering as young nursery managers, who were trained in the nursery gardening school. The power to restore their environment is placed back into the hands of local people.
