We are working on a regional Reforestation Initiative, which aims to plant a thousand trees in the Bennington area. Based on a ground-breaking study published in the journal Science
which surprised even the scientists who completed it, the potential for significant carbon sequestration is vast through tree-planting around the gobe . We are joining the world-wide movement to plant 2 billion trees. Currently, we are in the initial stages of the project: learning which trees are most important to plant in this geographical area and engaging with community partners to find locations for the planting that will not only sequester carbon, but build community -- and community resiliency.
