Miyawaki Forest

The Calgary Climate Hub with support from Alberta Ecotrust is working with community partners to plant tiny forests using the Miyawaki Method. We will plant up to 10 forests with a focus on areas with a low tree canopy. There are many benefits of urban forestation, including eliminating the heat island effect, increasing property values, providing recreation spaces and improved mental health and wellness. This work will result in a 'How to Plant a Tiny Forest in Calgary' handbook which can be used by individuals and community groups.
