Planting a Miyawaki Mini Forest for Carbon Sequestration and Biodiversity at Chamisal Vineyards Sustainable Winegrowing with Vineyard Team

    • Natural Sciences

Every vineyard has a portion of the property that is non-productive, but are there ways to maximize the benefits of this land? Chamisal Vineyards found the answer to this question with a Miyawaki Mini-forest. With soil amendments and planting 400 to 500 native plants at a high density, this process enables the forest to establish three to four times as rapidly as it would in a natural setting. The established forest will not only proffer a habitat for local fauna but, also provide carbon sequestration.
