The Cortada Projects team will be installing our latest project, Plan(T), through the University of Miami Richter Library and Lennar Foundation Medical Center on Friday, November 8!
Plan(T) is Miami-based 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 backyards. 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 distributing these mangroves during Earth week so come and make sure to get your free mangrove seedling and create an elevation-marked flag to paint at home so you can be part of our county-wide art project!
We need to be planning for our future, so start by planTing for the future!
