The Green Acre Project
Our goal is to build a community committed to planting trees on existing farmlands or wildlands. We are trying to replicate natural forests on this land. This is a process called "reforestation".
Specifically, we are looking for :
Generous donors so that we can acquire acres of land worldwide.
Volunteers to plant and nurture as many trees as they can on this acreage.
If you are not able to donate, please consider becoming a volunteer. The time to act is now! The more trees we grow sooner, the more carbon they are collectively able to sequester to counter the effects of climate change.
