Volterra Ecosystems S.L., was founded in 2015 under the aim to restore ecosystems through innovative agro and forestry techniques in Spain. They offer a proven integral management approach with healthy soil as the basis for successful regeneration of both rain fed and irrigated croplands. A well designed agroforestry system is resilient and not only restores degraded areas but also generates multiple ecosystem services. They believe that landscape restoration offers large untapped opportunities for sustainable economic development.
Volterra has the experience to restore degraded areas into healthy soils. They have performed large-scale landscape restoration with local farmers, land-users and experts, based on sustainable agroforestry practices and novel technologies. They have proven that implementing these projects does not only provide positive economic returns but also transfers knowledge, boosting job growth and generating multiple business activities in the area.
Volterra is currently involved in 5 LIFE projects dealing with reforestation, forest management, organic agriculture, dehesa and wetland restoration, always with a double objective: both environmental and economic progress has to be made in order for these projects to become successful long-term. Apart from technical assistance, Volterra offers extensive experience in conducting campaigns to increase local awareness.
