This was our very first forest. It was planted in the backyard of Mo’s (Junglo’s co-founder) house. It’s located in Cemagi, Bali, which is an area very close to the beach. To understand what to plant, we surveyed the surrounding temples and a monkey forest nearby.
Since the forest was made mostly by Mo, he decided it was easier to build up than to dig down. This is why he dug 50cm and then added an extra 50cm on top. Hence, the garden bed style look.
We were starting from scratch, so we had to figure and do everything ourselves. We dug the soil, called nurseries, visited forests, talked to researchers and had a million questions.
