watch a preview
Trainees for the Future features Ashanika strategies for forest management. The Apintxa village has been planting fruit and timber trees since 1989, and now the young children of the village are participating in the recuperation of degraded soil. Learning how to make compost and to plant seedlings in their gardens, they will later teach others what they have learned. With a consortium of 146 species of trees, the Apintxa hope to cultivate a long-lasting abundance of fruit. "This is what wealth means to us," one of the teachers explains.
