A Forest in Every Neighborhood

Have you experienced the wonder of planting a tree and watching it grow from seedling to maturity? Come meet the guy who wants to give every child this joy and, in the process, grow a “forest" in every neighborhood. Vikas Narula will share his love of trees and how a mid-life crisis inspired him to turn this love into a life-long mission.

In 2010, he founded Neighborhood Forest – a social venture dedicated to giving children their very own tree to plant on Earth Day – for free – every spring. It started with 4 schools in Minneapolis in 2010. Since then, Neighborhood Forest has grown and mobilized over 400 schools, libraries, and youth groups, reached over 100,000 families, and given over 50,000 children in 35 states the opportunity to plant their very own tree. His dream is to reach every child in America and eventually the world.
