ACTION ALERT for climate change:
We think of the Midwest, with its rivers, lakes, prairies and fields of grain, as the backbone of America.
One potential solution? Agroforestry, a type of farming that incorporates native fruit- and nut-bearing trees into farms.
The folks behind the Million Hazelnut Campaign believe the best tree to plant in order to start regenerating the Midwest is the Hazelnut. A million hazelnut trees could go a long way toward cleaning up water pollution, restoring wildlife habitat mitigating global warming by drawing down and sequestering carbon.
All we have to do is plant them. Can you help?
