PROJECT MX

TRANSFORMING A 23 HA PLOT OF LAND IN PPU, EAST KALIMANTAN

CURRENTLY COMPRISED MOSTLY OF UNPRODUCTIVE TREES, BUSH AND SHRUBS

INTO A BIODIVERSE, HIGH YIELDING, LOW-MAINTENANCE FOOD FOREST WITH A CONTINUOUS HARVEST OF NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS FOOD.  

Food Forest: a System that Produces

Fruits

Vegetables

Protein

Sugar

Building Materials

Bio-Fuel

and many more bio-products

Capturing CO2 through

Forests

In the body of trees via photosynthesis. More trees = more carbon sequestered. 

Biochar

A soil amendment made from pyrolyzed scrap wood that can be stored in the soil for centuries. Biochar retains nutrients and beneficial microbes to help forests grow. 

Mycelium

The giant mushroom that grows underneath forests. With a C:N ratio upwards of 100:1, mycelium sequesters huge amounts of carbon as it grows. 

To help mitigate and eventually REVERSE CLIMATE CHANGE with additional positive externalities such as:

  • WATER RETENTION

  • AIR PURIFICATION

  • CLIMATE REGULATION

  • EROSION CONTROL

  • SOIL NUTRIENT RETENTION

  • BIODIVERSITY PRESERVATION

BASED ON A MODEL CREATED BY OUR MENTOR,
