If so, what are your opinions/experiences? Wouldn`t it be amazing to create masses of food forests the same way, or merging the existing networks and knowledge of forestgardeners and PFTP?
Just from the website--I think it's great. The best part is, kids are smarter, more open-minded, and less truth- and creativity-resistant than grownups. So if the organization becomes bs, they will course correct and make it better.
I bet there are kids who are knowledgeable about food forests, and the kids involved in the organization plant-for-the-planet would be likelier to listen to them.
Clearly there are a couple of problems with the approach as stated:
--planting trees only for the function of sequestering CO2 while not addressing the production side of things
--planting trees for only one function, instead of stacking functions (food, fodder, shade, shelter, etc...)
--planting trees only instead of caring for existing trees, encouraging coppicing/taking only the surplus/branches etc.
But as I said I believe the kids will course-correct, if they haven't already.
Thanks for sharing this!
