Calling all Pinecrest Elementary students, parents, faculty and staff!
Please come out on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Pinecrest Elementary during the 2019 Super Hero Fest and visit Cortada Projects’ tent, where we will be featuring our latest county-wide project Plan(T).
Plan(T) is local environmental artist, Xavier Cortada’s latest participatory eco-art project. It aims to expand South Florida’s mangrove forest by asking residents to plant mangrove propagules, or seedlings, in their own yards. Mangroves are salt-tolerant plants that act as natural barriers against storm surge, sequester carbon dioxide and help grow our native tree canopy. By planting them in your backyard, you are taking a step towards a better and safer future for South Florida.
We will be giving out mangrove propagules and customizable elevation-marked flags at the festival! So please stop by our tent to start planning for your future by planting for your future!
