Planting trees and cleaning up backyards to prevent dengue fever

Planting trees and cleaning up backyards to prevent dengue fever

08/03/2021 - 14:06

Location: Condominium da Lagoa in "Cidade de Deus" Sete Lagoas, MG; Brazil

Fruit trees were planted with TerraCottem soil conditioner under the supervision of agronomist Ana Sylvia Da Glória Soares (Verde Tudo) and in partnership with the Epidemiology Department of Sete Lagoas

Why? Ana Sylvia explains:

"To ensure a good establishment of the trees and thus increase the plant’s survival rate. Thanks to the polymers present in the formula, the trees will also require less water."

The tree planting together with the cleaning of the backyards is done in partnership between SOLARIS, a consultancy company providing social environmental assistance and the Epidemiology Department of Sete Lagoas to combat dengue fever. The works will be carried out throughout the condominium aiming at the common welfare and environmental awareness of the condominium's residents.
