A Forest in Times Square…

The PopUp Forest in Times Square is back on! This is my original post, with updated link to the Kickstarter page. Let’s get this thing going!

My friend, the botanist and all around urban nature superhero Marielle Anzelone, is fundraising for a PopUp Forest in Times Square.

Sounds crazy, right? A bit of forest in the resolutely artificial, corporate-gagged, light-pollution-bathed, Elmo-stalked, tourist-duped nightmare they’ve made of the ol’ Forty-Deuce? Precisely the point!

Click the link for more details: as you can imagine, there will be a lot of details to work out before this happens in the spring of 2016. This is a Kickstarter campaign, to raise the initial money for early programming, marketing, and overall concept design, so you can give as little as a dollar or as much as…. (and there are rewards for such things, if you need a bribe.)
