At Cortijo Romero we offer a unique opportunity for you to contribute to the local area, offset your carbon, and have a cheaper holiday, all at once.
Our Tree Project project has already planted over 3000 trees in the mountains, most of which are surviving well. A team of volunteers also planted an avenue of more mature trees along the banks of the small river near to Cortijo Romero, greatly improving the amenity of the area.
The next opportunity for a cheap holiday helping with the project in a great community atmosphere is November 7th - November 14th 2015.
Four years after we started our project, the local governments for our area set up their own scheme. Naturally, they were able to do it on a much larger scale than we can, so we were delighted that they took up the challenge and planted a further 12,000 trees. Unfortunately, their contractors did not do such a thorough job as our volunteers and the survival rate of the trees they planted has been poor.
Our project will retain a broader focus and we hope that the organisers of its spin-off charity, Trevor Taylor will continue to innovate and demonstrate new ways of protecting and enhancing the environment.
