There are many forgotten spots, untended spots, uncared for spots throughout our neighborhood.
Many are hot, exposed, solar oven-like areas, devoid of trees and other vegetation.
And some have easy access to free stormwater runoff, which could be redirected to provide these spots with free irrigation water to grow living air conditioners of native edible shade trees.
Let’s plant living shelter, living gene banks, living plant nurseries from which more life, food, joy, and regenerative potential can spread.
And for those spots that don’t have enough room for a full-size tree, there may be ample room for a bush tree or food-producing cacti.
If you are interested in:
• Seeing such a spot(s) near you get planted and enlivened, and you are up for watering the plantings to get them established,
• And/or helping plant such spots,
then contact Brad at NeighborhoodForesters@gmail.com to let him know.
We’ll be planting rain and seedlings in such spots in early mornings throughout the second half of September and the first half or so of October.
Some of the plantings may even be guerrilla plantings.
