5 August 2020, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Siniloan, Laguna. 16 participants, some regular and some new, from all around the world joined Joyce Raboca’s Yoga For Forests online yoga sessions, also donating for a total of 79 indigenous Philippine secondary agro-forestry trees to be added to the Yoga For Forests site in the protected reserve of Laguna Quezon Land Grant, an over 9,000 hectare secondary forest managed by the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) – FEED’s first Living Legacy partner involved in Climate Change Action Programs founded on community-based reforestation.
Thank you to Jason Berg (donating 2 times this month), Leah Numbers, Jeff Stern, Nadine V.L Gutierrez, Lori Araten (donating twice having participated in 2 sessions this July 2020), Tanapan Chimpitak, Brijesh Kumar, Julienne Raboca, Angelica Maranan, Maria Theresa Cervero, Mara Patricia Dimailig, Ma Maranan and Heidi Heller for adding the 79 trees to your Yoga For Forest in the Sierra Madre Mountains this July 2020!
Since the YOGA FOR FORESTS was launched by Joyce and FEED in June 2020, as of today, a total of 231 trees have been planted by the community forest guards at LQLG. As with all FEED plantings sites, a minimum 85% survival of species planted are met, which typically requires regular and constant on the ground surveillance, site clearing and ring and de-weeding especially during the rainy seasons. Additionally, 25 permanent forest guards regularly patrol the area also for animal (e.g. carabao, horses, etc) and other interferences, to ensure the survival rates are reached.

ABOUT YOGA FOR FORESTS by JOYCE RABOCA
To create an awareness of the environment with each yogi recruited, and with that a whole forest planted by sponsorship from yogis.
All donations go directly to FEED for community-based reforestation efforts, either in mangrove forests of Bulacan, Pampanga, La Union or Sorsogon for coastal protection in our most critical coastlines (Philippines having the 5th longest in the world); or upland forest trees in the Sierra Madre mountain range, the longest range in the Philippines.

The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry. Join us!
