Tiny Forests

 

Presented by a representative from the Nordson Green  Earth Foundation.

 "Nordson Green Earth Foundation is a non-profit focused on improving tree equity in under-resourced neighborhoods in the Chicagoland area.  We work to bring tiny forests to urban communities that lack tree and green space due the systemic and structural racism that shaped these neighborhoods in the last century. Our aim is to bring more nature into these neighborhoods in the hopes of achieving greater healthequity through the benefits of nature while also mitigating the effects of climate change. Nordson Green Earth Foundation is working to build collaborations with organizations aligned with our mission of using nature-based solutions to achieve health equity. Nordson Green Earth Foundation is a women-led 501(c)(3) organization"
