From baby sheep to fledgling forests. Another acre of native trees was planted on a slope by the Little Monocacy as part of our Re-Leaf the Reserve program. This new forest will limit erosion to keep the creek clean and sequester tons of carbon. Native seedlings from Schotts Nurseries , planting by Gardens by Garth and able coordination by our own board member Carole Bergmann all in partnership with the county Planning Department.
Surely trees sequester significant carbon, but while we are at home, we are afforded some time to consider a moss garden. Moss and lichen fix half of the world's terrestrial nitrogen, helping surrounding plants take up lots more CO2.
