Meeting of Like Minds: Natural Urban Forests

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT


MOLMs are a free benefit for members. Registration before the event is not required.

Come join us at the Center for Urban Horticulture for the first MOLM of 2024. Ethan Bryson will spill the dirt on the history and science behind Miyawaki forests, one approach to bring compact native forests into urban settings. Partake in a potluck dinner (per UW policies, all offerings must be commercially prepared) and learn about Miyawaki forest installations in Washington State and beyond.

Excerpt from Ethan on Natural Urban Forests, “Natural Urban Forests is an afforestation company focused on addressing the urgent need to restore native forest ecosystems.

Based in Seattle, Washington we create forests utilizing the Miyawaki method of forest planting with heightened attention to transforming life in the soil. This innovative method enables forests to grow 10x faster at 30x the density of standard afforestation methods.

We work to honor and involve local indigenous communities in the planting and ongoing care of these forests. When possible we begin each planting with a blessing to reset the land, and nurture the plants, animals, and people.”

Doors open at 6:30 pm, so come early to share in the potluck and be ready for our program at 7 pm. We will start with brief announcements and a short auction of garden- and tree-related gems.

If you are a PlantAmnesty member you will pay no entry fee. Non-members’ entry fee is $10.
