Community Plant Nursery/Seed Bank

In 2019, MBLA collaborated with the local Ait Lkak association to build a community plant nursery, with its agricultural terraces divided into 24 plots and irrigated with a drip irrigation system to save water. We are currently cultivating 26 endemic, endangered, and valuable plant species, including thyme and lavender. Our community seed bank, which we established to invite farmers to exchange and conserve local seed varieties, is located right next to our plant nursery. The Oukaïmeden plant nursery and seed bank, like our other sites, are open to the local community and visitors from all walks of life. They host a number of environment-related workshops geared toward people who are interested in learning about the local biodiversity, agroecology and ways to achieving harmony with nature. The events and activities hosted by Oukaïmeden’s plant nursery help to raise awareness of the region’s rich biodiversity and promote it as an ecotourism destination.
