Last week our village has been transformed by a big event that brought together the different projects based here and many other people for the defense of water and our ecosystem. As we have been denouncing in the past years, the fresh water spring of the Río Aguas is getting every year dryer because of a super-intensive plantation of olive trees that takes most of its water from the aquifer.
We organized this day to invite everybody in the surrounding to come and see with their eyes the unicity of this place and the beauty of the hundreds of species that survive in the middle of the desert thanks to this scarce resource.
We would like to thank all the people that shared with us this beautiful time and all that helped in its organisation. We were very happy to meet many local people who took this chance to come to Los Molinos maybe for the first time. Many came from Almeria and some even from Murcia, and we hope to welcome them again in this amazing landscape.
