In collaboration with the scouts of Compagnie Franciscaines Badaro, tOD organized a hands-on maintence session with a group of 50 scouts where they learnt and helped maintain a Miyawaki Forest. The maintenance tasks included: compost-tea making, de-weeding, re-stacking support sticks and more.
As part of BeirutRiverLESS initiative, tOD partnered with Afforestt and SUGi, to gather 20+ participants and introduce them to the Japanese Miyawaki technique. Through an engaging hands-on workshop, they managed to plant the first native urban forest in Sin el Fil Lebanon.
As part of the UN Decade of Action on Ecosystem Restoration, theOtherDada will participate in the Tabadul on river ecosystems and related successful projects in the MENA region.
We will talk about our pilot project Beirut’s RiverLESS forest as a nature-based solution for challenging urban sites.
Wednesday 24 March at 11:30am Beirut time
