Sayulita Verde was established at the beginning of 2009, its small nursery is located on the out-skirts of Sayulita, where mostly native species from the Nayarit coastline are being cultivated.
Seeds were gathered locally and germinated during 2008 in the San Pancho Nursery. In 2009 almost 400 of these seedlings were taken to a nursery site here in Sayulita . Now the trees and shrubs are more than 3 years old and most of these have been planted in various areas around Sayulita.
In 2009 Sayultia Verde reached its goal to plant 300 trees and shrubs during the rainy season. We also established a program for the protection and care of the planted trees during the dry season of 2009 / 2010.
In 2010 Sayulita Verde was unable to plant trees due to heavy rains all through the 2010 rainy season. However extensive work was performed at the nursery, we translplanted all trees and shrubs to larger plastic bags, and new seeds were propagated. We lost a lot of trees in the flooding of late summer 2010.
Sayulita Verde encourages the participation of schools, students and others, in educational projects and in public environmental awareness programs, and in this way our actions can serve as a focal point for the conservation of our forest and wildlife and the preservation of our unique ecology.
Sayulita Verde invites anyone who has an interest in this Project to participate. The nursery is located 2 km from the Punta Mita highway on the old road to San Ignacio or Camino a la Estropajera, in the Rancho Santuario.
