Welcome to the Greening in the Red Zone blog. Here you will read about examples of people turning to nature in times of crisis to get through hardships from the news media, and from personal accounts. Of particular interest are stories of people whose involvement in "greening" immediately after a disaster or war increased their own and their community's resistance and resilience to the disturbance. We hope you will find inspiration in these stories, and we welcome you to add your own stories of Greening in the Red Zone.

NY Times Article- Schoharie NY

A few plein-air tables under the maples and the Norway spruces behind the Daughters of the American Revolution hall in Schoharie becomes a cafe, and a symbol of resilience, resistance, and recovery. An interesting take on Greening in the Red Zone, both in terms of the site selection under the trees, and because of the important, obvious, and oft overlooked links between food and  survival, symbolically and otherwise.
