Grow firewood yourself around Nurata Reserve

To promote our call for the creation of culture, traditions, habits of growing firewood for oneself in rural areas, in order to provide ourselves with clean energy, we want to launch the following project:

The project plans to create one demonstration plantation of wood firewood in Forishsky district, not far from the village of Andygen, in the territory of 8 hectares. We will calculate how profitable this business is to the end.

In addition, the project will conduct educational work to disseminate mentioned practices in the villages around the Nurata reserve, so that, in addition to energy benefits and bonuses, it will also benefit in reducing pressure on the biodiversity of the reserve.
