From barren land to mini forest. The lush green cover at Rare Earth what you see today was always not like that. It was totally barren land just few years back. Sustainable plantation not only created the mini jungle at Rare Earth but also became home for many rare spices of birds, butterflies and others living beings. The Mini forest also supplies us with ample amount of firewood for cooking and bonfire year round. One can enjoy walking the small trail through the forest, watching birds or doing Jungle Bathing. Forest bathing has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and heart rate, boost the immune system, improve mood and cognitive function, and increase feelings of well-being.
