Kalimera! I still haven't had time to tell you about what has been done at the Park to restore the land and reforest. For the ones that don't know the place, it's a beautiful area of Paros that has been protected for a while from grazing and hunting for many years now. Also there have been many successful plantings done this past years. The Friends of the Park, with the help and expertise of Elena Symeonidou, have put in place earthworks to slow down the rain water falling in this area, to make the most out it. It's one of the Permaculture's (regenerative agriculture) most important principles: " Slow, spread, and infiltrate the flow of water". Rather than having water run erosively off the land’s surface, encourage it to stick around, “walk” around, and infiltrate into the soil. Slow it, spread it, sink it." When you have a slope without vegetation and poor soil, water just runs-of, taking with it the little part of the top soil (the richer part) that was trying to build up, to create good conditions for plants to establish. Poor soil doesn't absorb well water, and without roots to aerate it, it becomes very compacted. If you slow the water down with barriers like stones or mini ditches, on contour ( same level, perpendicular to the slope), the water will slow down, spread on the sides and finally it will be absorbed. Also, because it will be slower, it wont (or less) wash off the soil that is building up with organic matter (fallen leaves, dried or dead plants, etc). Also the stone barriers will retain what water will bring and will create a good accumulation of material to make the soil richer in order to plant. This replaces vegetation's role until plants, trees and shrubs take over and are able to to this by themselves. That's why they have placed this stones perpendicular to the slope and tracing discrete lines in contour, to divert water. To add to this good work, Imerys Industrial Minerals from its nursery in Milos donated 1000 local bushes and plants to help reforest this area. Some volunteers met to help do the planting in December. May this amazing work continue! ❤️🌱🎋🌿🌲
