Join us on Thursday, Nov. 21 at Miami-Dade’s Main Library at 12:00 p.m. to learn how global climate change is impacting your community and what Plan(T) is doing to help combat it from Founder of Cortada Projects, Xavier Cortada!
Plan(T) is 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 backyard or front 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 yard, you are taking a step towards a better and safer future for South Florida.
Cortada will be giving a presentation as to how Plan(T) came to be, how Plan(T) is combating climate change , and how you can join the movement!
So come and get your free mangrove seedling and create an elevation-marked flag to paint at home so you can be part of Cortada’s county-wide art project!
We need to be planning for our future, so start by planTing for the future!
