1. Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that led the founder(s) to get started or the story of how you saw the potential for this project to succeed.

Our ancestors taught us that forest is a livelihood for humans, such as house needs, pharmaceuticals, and also for knowing the season changing. One that inspires is Jasri wants to save the forest as much as he is able to. What I refers to knowing the season changing is, in the past, when they want to do planting, they see the season, whether it is proper for them to do it. Lately, when climate change appears, it distracts them to implement their local wisdom.
