Update: This topic was granted 'Solution'. It was initially shared under the title "Welcome Afforestt, an Open way to reforest". The link to a full documentation about how to set up a forest is shared in the topic.
On wednesday I had a great call with Shubhendu Sharma from Afforestt.
You might have seen him in his pretty cool TED talk (4 minutes), explaining how he is able to grow a forest 10x faster without chemical and pesticides.
The methodology is already in Open Source (Update: Copy of documentation), and he's got some interesting plans for which he can probably use some of our communities help.
Among his plans are:
- The creation of a wikipedia like database of native plants, where people can add their listing, while cross-checking the list of others and making really robust listings of local species.
- An app that could geo-localize a place to be reforested to suggest local solutions, and the steps to make a forest
He'll be in France around April 21st, and he will also be going to the Netherlands quite frequently, so there might be a chance that he could join an event from there during the OSCE days.
I think it would be great to find a way of featuring his project among any city event, whether to educate around his methodology, to apply it directly or to work on his new tools.
What do you think?
