  • Description


    This Center was created from an initiative of the Pedagogic College in Sucre, in which the reforestation with wild economy and regional development are combined. The ecologic Youthcenter offers since 23 years to group of people from the entire country of Bolivia a very convenient possibility of accomodation in order to conduct seminars and to convert them in praktik ecologic projects such as: with medical herbalgardens, vegetables cultivation, mushrooms ... and a lot more.

    In the meanwhile in this mountain area 500 Hectars have already been planted with over 200.000 trees. In this way this erosioned area of previously bare soil surface converts itself into a green place of forest, meadow, gardens, fruit trees and flowers. Uniquely the bolivian high Ande (3200 m.o.s.) become inhabitated by wild animals and the Households are enabled to get themselves chickens, gooses, ducks, donkeys and horses additionally to sheep and goats, which live already from a long time in the slopes.

    After an initially sceptical impression/ observation the surrounding population is now planting their own slopes with many trees. A very big forest is born/ has aroused and many neighbours have become forest farmers. The climate in this area is temperated and the attic quality of the soil increases continuously.
