new project with my Rhea International Team

We started working on the construction of a new #constructedwetland in Guarumal, a small #community in #Guaranda Province – Ecuador.

Our construction expert Andrea is speaking with Don Manovanda, a local master builder with many years of experience, to decide how to operate and organize the acquisition of the required resources and materials.

Our constructed wetland will clean water proceeding from a #cheese#factory, an invaluable economic resource for the people of the community.

You too are in charge of a cheese factory, and need to solve the wastewater problem? Contact us, Rhea can help you! |

The new system in the Bosconero Hut- An alpine treatment wetland

Here I am working in the Bosconero Hut to enlarge the beds and improve the functionality of the wetland system. This was made eleven years ago within a biogas project in the Hut.
The beds were planted with local flora to keep the specific biodiversity status of the Dolomiti area.

Hello friends... here I am back.
Three sons and a positive summer time keep me off of this blog... I hope you are all ok!

Last September I was in Ecuador to visit some of the plants that I have built with my friend and partner Andrea and to meet a lot of interesting persons. Thanks to them we are now designing a lot of new treatment wetlands for municipality, pig farms and cheese factories.
Here below some pictures of the system I have projected last year and realized by Andrea Zorzi. It is planted with vetiver... the miracle plants!

one more reedland in the world !

Yes, I do it again. Do you remember my idea of Guerrilla Gardening becoming Guerrilla Wetlanding? 
Well, last week, with the help of the municipality of Desenzano del Garda and the friendship of the Lega Navale of Brescia-Desenzano I was able to plant more than 200 plants of our loved Phragmites. Was not the real concept of Guerrilla but I worked under a real funding project.

Within the ecological network idea we planted a new reedland (...or a new wetland as you prefer!) to connect the inland to the waters, in the shore of the Garda's Lake in Italy. The biggest lake in Italy and South of Europe.

just arrived

a great root potential

let's go to the shore...

ready to be planted

the new home

what a great view....!!!

ready to grow!!!
