ForestR Cleans

ForestR is introducing a deeper green approach to local Adopt-a-Highway programs. Every Saturday, ForestR teams spread out along the local freeways to provide litter collection, fire abatement, and land restoration services. In 2021, the program collected over 250 bags of litter, as well as a great many large, unbaggable items like truck tires and mattresses. Teams also trimmed trees and collected felled limbs and underbrush from areas at risk of fire. They then utilized these materials to conduct permaculture land restoration work, which included mulching the root zone of healthy trees and inoculating the soils with mycelia in preparation for underplanting of native seeds. In addition to providing environmental services, these activities are also an environmental education and green jobs program for youth, who learn about community organizing and sustainability, and earn $15/hr doing it. The EveryoneCleans program pays homeless neighbors by the bag for litter collection.
