The Green Acre Project
Most people don't fully understand Climate Change, and its impact on humans. The Green Acre Project aims towards a community of tree planters. Specifically, we are looking towards individuals getting an acre of land and planting as many trees as they can on it. If you cannot do that, plant as many trees as you can in a public park, your front yard, or in any other place where you have permission to do so. The time to act is now because the older the tree is, the more carbon it will sequester. We also want everyone aware of what Climate Change is and how it is affecting our lives every day.
There are simple things that anyone can do to help the environment. The more people who understand these simple steps, the bigger the impact will be. One of the biggest simple things to do is plant a tree. Anyone can do it. We want to build a community of tree planters, be it online or in-person.
