Ambongdolan (Tublay, Benguet)

Funded by the AEON Environmental Foundation, CGN launched a reforestation and watershed rehabilitation project in Ambongdolan in April, 2014. In the project, native trees were planted on a communal land and agroforestry coffee cultivation was introduced to prevent further deforestation.

As shortage of water is considered a serious threat to the community, not only the residents, but also local government units and volunteers from outside joined the planting activities. During the three-year project, total 69,500 trees were planted, of which 27,0000 were Arabica coffee seedlings. Nursery establishment and environmental workshops in elementary and high schools were also incorporated in the project. 



"Ambongdolan" means a place where a rainbow appears. There are beautiful rice terraces and natural caves.
