GLH Worldwide Partners: Chile


Chile  Universidad Austral de Chile

  • Universidad Austral de Chile, Valdivia, Chile

August 2014: Mr. Vincente Pinto, ex-counselor of Embassy of Chile in Japan, visited the botanical garden of Universidad Austral de Chile. Saplings are growing in good health.  Mr. Pinto describes: ‘Ginkgos bilobas were the first to share their beauty and are now strong with buds, waiting their second vigorous sprouting ... one among all is announcing that green spring will come soon ... Cinnamomun camphors are so  generous, just as their parents, full of leaves and growing strongly ... Ilex rotunda were the last to wake up from their sleepy dream to Valdivia and are now just starting to show their first shiny leaves ...’ GLH Chile partners have started thinking about possible sites for planting the saplings.
