RETREET redefines disaster relief by engaging communities to replant lost trees.
NYC RETREET RECAP
IT IS AMAZING WHAT HUMANS CAN DO, ESPECIALLY ON reTREEt. This past weekend, 52 reTREEters converged in NYC to rebuild and reforest a coastal dune in Rockaway Beach and ride the NYC Century. Together, they moved approximately 190,000 pounds of sand, soil, and mulch using nothing more than shovels and wheelbarrows, and planted 111 trees, some 3” in diameter. The next day, they rode 100 miles through the city, visiting four boroughs and countless communities. A MONUMENTAL EFFORT AND AN ASTOUNDING ACCOMPLISHMENT!
