Miyawaki Pocket Forest Planting Day

The Richmond Secondary School Green Team, in collaboration with Garden City Conservation Society, and Earth Literacies, will be hosting a Miyawaki Pocket Forest Planting and Celebration on Saturday, November 19 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  A Miyawaki Pocket Forest is a dense formation of native species that boasts 10x faster growth, 30x more density, and 100x more biodiversity due to its resemblance to a wild, sprawling forest.  This Forest is being planted in hopes of rewilding and decolonizing the space, re-establishing biodiversity, mitigating climate change effects (sequestering carbon, excess precipitation, drought, heat domes, etc.), and creating a community space. 

Everyone is welcome to join and help with the planting of the first Miyawaki Pocket Forest in Western Canada located on the west side of Richmond Secondary School (Moffatt Road side).  This project is sponsored by TreeCanada.
