Reforestation work at Somie

Led by a registered co-op group (REFOCASO) several small scale reforestation projects are ongoing in Somie and its surroundings. As well as the work on a pilot field and subsequent extension REFOCASO has been doing work to secure the area of the catchment for the Somie water project.

Following a landslip which broke the pipeline and threatened the structures lower down they are now actively looking for support for a further area of reforestation to proctect those slopes which have been made vulnerable following bush fires and tree cover loss. On behalf of the village they are seeking to raise funds for the repair of pipes and filtration plant damaged or broken by the landslip. A water engineer has prepared report and an estimate for the work needed (more infromation available on request).
