To date 4500 trees have been planted and our goal is to have our Volunteer AmbassadorsSM plant 100,000 trees over the next 2 years in Miami and Jamaica.
This planting was in the Virginia Keys, Florida. We planted 1500 trees on December, 1, 2012 and on December 8, 2012 in Matterson Park, Coral Gables, we planted 3000 trees.
This project has "Volunteer Ambassadors" ages 5 - 80 years old. It's a perfect event for the entire family.
We are also raising funds of $1 per tree planted by our Volunteer Ambassadors to support our Empowerment Camps for At Risk and Underserved student athletes in Jamaica.

The mangrove propagules have been growing steadily in their eco-art installations and are now ready to return to their natural home.
We invite you to our mangrove re-planting event where you will help us reforest mangrove habitats one seedling at a time!
Mangroves are extremely valuable for coastal ecosystems. They support coastal fisheries by acting as breeding grounds for juvenile fish. Their roots stabilize the shore, provide life-saving protection from the effects of hurricanes and trap pollutants within their sediment. Without mangroves, many coastal fishing areas and habitats would deteriorate.
