Improving the agricultural productivity of the land and recreating ecological continuity:
The project will restore the original agricultural role of various holdings by creating an area of farmland accompanied by biodiversity areas.
The rehabilitation of the site is being done with appropriate grading and by restoring the agricultural productivity of the soil. Creating fertile soil and producing 37 acres of farmland will make it possible for the farmer to resume operations and will safeguard the agricultural role of the land for the future.
The project includes measures to recreate ecological continuity, ensure the future of natural habitats and promote the maintenance and development of flora and fauna with:
- Conservation of existing natural environments (wetlands, small lakes, watercourses and neighbouring woods).
- The reconstitution of a mosaic of environments, restoring ecological corridors and biodiversity in this district.
The project in figures:
Start date: 2020
Length of project: 2 years
Ecological plan: Restoring 37 acres and returning it to agriculture, creating ecological developments of grassland and wetland over 8 acres, then planting 11 acres of wooded slopes.
