Lunch & Learn: World’s Smallest Forests
This event has passed.
We host a very casual monthly brown bag lunch at the TreeHouse. Each month, we invite a Trees Atlanta staff or crew member, volunteer, or friend to present an interesting environmental topic for discussion. Brown bag Lunch & Learns are typically on the second Thursday of each month.
When we think of forests, many of us probably think of vast, untouched land far from the urban life of a city. Engineer and entrepreneur, Shubhendu Sharma, suggests that dense, multi-layered forests with hundreds of trees can grow in an area as small as six parking spaces. As Atlanta grows and becomes increasingly dense, could planting the world’s smallest forests help us preserve or even increase the valuable benefits of our urban trees, maintaining our reputation as the City in the Forest?
