The Plantadores de Água (Water Planters) is a group that aims to plant native Cerrado seedlings and other Brazilian species that adapt to the Biome, in the urban environment.
Its main focus is the recovery and conservation of recharge areas and springs. The group’s name came from the fact that trees are great facilitators for the process of water infiltration into the soil.
The group is made up of professionals, teachers, civil servants, environmental engineers who previously worked individually, planting trees in degraded areas and squares in Goiânia and the metropolitan region. We also carry out plantations on private properties by invitation.
Since 2019, we have carried out planting actions mainly in the period from November to February, taking advantage of the rainy season in our region that is the most likely to survive the seedlings. During the dry season, we monitor seedlings and maintain planted areas.
