Moon Forest - MiniSelva II
Bringing back biodiversity to a monoculture farm
The owner of the land is aware of the damages created by intense monoculture to the island of Mallorca. He wants to create an oasis of biodiversity on 800 Sq m (8,700 Sq ft) on this land where life has almost disappeared because of agriculture practices and the semi arid climate of the island.

Despite the dramatic summer heat of 2022 and challenges in terms of access to water, this forest is doing well. We managed to continue to water the forest, which is showing off some nice greenery. Growth is steady, though slower than that of other Miyawaki forests - we think due to the extent of the summer heat, lack of rain and exposed location of the forest. Several species are doing very well, including sage (Salvia officinalis), fig (Ficus carica) and wild olive (Olea sylvestris).
