“Trail Distillation of Wintergreen and Artemisia” to promote people’s participation in environment conservation and forest management by Dozam Community Forestry Management Group (DCFMG) in Dramitse, Mongar.
The Dozam Community Forest has an area of 358 hactres. There are a total of 114 households are registered members of which 70 are women accounting for more than 60% of all the members. Hence, women play an important role in all the CF activities.

Organic certified essential oil of wintergreen and Artemisia are two NTFPs that have high market demand in Europe. Hence they have high potential for contributing to increase in areas of managed forests and improving income opportunities for rural communities particularly in eastern Bhutan where lemon grass oil distillation takes place. However, there is no information on the natural resource base of these two herbs, neither is there any information on the production cost.

Therefore, the primary objective of the project is to carry out a trial distillation of wintergreen and artemisia in Dozam and carry out a survey on the resource base of these two herbs within Dramitse Geog.

The main objective of the project is
1. to promote people's participation in environmnent conservation and forest management;
2. to restore degraded forests by planting trees and managing the existing forest resources;
3. and to protect the regeneration from forest fires and illegal extraction of resources.

The project activities includes the following:
1. Trail Distillation;
2. Resource Inventory;
3. Resource assessment and
4. project reporting.
