⚫ Reforestation Project
In 2006, Haas developed a pilot project which encouraged rural families located in small farms to diversify crops on their properties. The project aimed to propose crop diversification with the insertion of Eucalyptus. This change in culture contributes to the higher income of the property, better scaling of land, protection for the soil with the merge of cultures, security and greater autonomy for producing families.
The Project also had a social context. The rural exodus, especially in small family farms is cause for concern. The deployment of profitable, clean and safe crops as the Eucalyptus is essential to reduce this fact.
In total, 48 small farmers were directly benefited by the project. 48 families who had the opportunity to expand their income and serve as an example for other farming families.
