Help to plant 10 000 trees of 20 different species. We are not waiting for trees to appear, we are planting! 2019 is the year we take the first step towards the birth of a forest which,in the next 20 years, will begin to cover a large part of Serra do Feital, Vilares and Broca.

Help to plant 10 000 trees of 20 different species. We are not waiting for trees to appear, we are planting! 

Projecto Bosques intends to initiate the creation of a forest area promoting aspects related to soil and water conservation, improving the microclimate, sequestering and storing carbon, preserving biodiversity, enriching the landscape and securing a variety of resources from the ecosystem.

Desertification is becoming evident and it will hardly be reversed. In reality, what can change this trend is the audacity to think the impossible!

The silence of stones is our silence. We need silence to observe, reflect and create, in order to consider what we give to ourselves and the world that surrounds us.

Não muito longe do Jardim das Pedras ainda existem Bosques onde as Pedras e as Árvores são cúmplices!

Não muito longe do Jardim das Pedras ainda existem Bosques onde as Pedras e as Árvores são cúmplices!

For more than two hundred years the silence of the countryside’s granite landscape has been interrupted by a deafening noise, not of the wind, but of human action.

Today shrubs are the surviving species in what would have been an extensive forest. But in certain areas, there is not even enough soil forthose shrubs.

The stone predominates in a scenario with very little remaining soil.

This is what happens in areas such as Jardim das Pedras.

In a few years there will be no soil in these places, only a desert of stone.

WE WANT JARDIM DAS PEDRAS TO STAY A GARDEN, GREEN AND FERTILE.

WE WANT TO PLANT A FOREST TODAY

The most difficult part is to imagine how we can grow an entire forest in an area of stones.

To imagine the impossible is the only way to begin.

2019 is the year we take the first step towards the birth of a forest which, in the next 20 years, will begin to cover a large part of Serra do Feital, Vilares and Broca.

About the author

Projecto Bosques is a project of Associação Luzlinar with União de Freguesias de Vila Franca das Naves e Feital, União de Freguesias de Vilares e Carnicães and Associação de Desenvolvimento do Feital, in partnership with the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro and Associação de Produtores Florestais do Alto da Broca.

We also count with the indispensable support of the Trancoso School Group, the Volunteer Firefighters of Vila Franca das Naves and the local population.

Jardim das Pedras is a place at the top of Serra da Aldeia Artística do Feital where for more than 20 years artists from all over the world have come together to work and learn alongsidethe stones and the natural environment.

Associação Luzlinar promotes research on the multiplicity of relationships between artistic practices and the natural spaces where they intervene, through observation and understanding.

Helping to raise a forest is also a way of modeling the landscape, making it a work of art!
