Earth Month Activities

Plans for Earth Month are in the works! We will be announcing them the last week of March. Stay tuned!

The Organization We Are Sponsoring!

Trees For The Future is a tree drive that is intended to help Marshall County Residents participate in Earth Month by planting a tree or two. The drive works by asking for donations, for each dollar donation you will receive one tree for a max of 5 total per household, although you won’t receive any more trees past our max of 5, we still welcome more donations.

Who are we fundraising for? Well, that’s the name of our event… Trees For The Future (TREES), a global team committed to changing the world. Their mission is to end hunger and poverty by training farmers to regenerate their land. Through our donations they can help educate and plant trees across the globe to those in need. TREES is committed to implementing sustainable gardening practices stemming from the planting of trees. Their solution begins with their Forest Garden program, a simple, replicable, and scalable approach with proven success. How? It starts with trees. Through this 4 -year training program farmers plant thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. This helps farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. Forest garden farmers gain increases in income and access to food, even in the first year, all while improving the environment. By 2030 they hope to have planted 1 billion trees!
