The work of Plant Five for Life is dedicated to connecting children and families with nature from birth. Our primary program is delivered in collaboration with the health care community; planting trees for every newborn, marking the start of new life and contributing to their life support system.
The trees are matched within the first year after birth to sites in or near each child’s neighborhood to sites in need of ecological and social services and planted with the families or planted by our network of community partners.
The program creates opportunities for families to engage with the trees growth and their community as their child grows.
The Plant Five for Life vision and program invests in tree planting as a critical component of health infrastructure and healthy childhood development, education and care.
There are numerous ways for any individual, business and/or municipality to join this collaborative movement: new parent, seasoned parent, and/or no parent alike!
