My Brave Browser sent me an ad about free grant searches today. I was curious because, well, free money. Of course, my first thought was tree money!
So far, I've clicked one of them. Not available to the US yet, but this one is available to a lot of other people, mostly in Africa.

Y'all know what I want to see here. I want to see someone establish a food forest.
That's a short video from Geoff Lawton about establishing a food forest. Of course, there's more to it than that, but his depth of understanding these systems really shines in this new video. I've been gravely lacking nitrogen fixers, which are a crucial first step in food forestry. I've been focusing on obtaining a yield. Next year, more nitrogen fixers.
Anyways, I figured this would come in handy for someone. @treeplanter and @thegreens come to mind initially, but resteem and tag folks to spread the word. I'd love to see a steemian get funding for their ecological projects. @artemislives, maybe someone in your area could benefit from this? Thailand specifically isn't mentioned, but I know you get around over there :) @bghandade, do y'all have anyone in any of those countries? There's some listed there in Europe. @gogreenbuddy, maybe you know someone? @buckaroo! Need trees? They increase water retention in a landscape... @craigcryptoking FREE TREES!
All action for the good of all.
If you'd like to support my projects beyond the upvote, please consider a crypto donation to the cause!
Some of these are exchange addresses so that I'll get notifications of deposits. From there, the funds will either be moved to wallets that I control, exchanged for steem to boost my influence here, or to USD to fund a project.
