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.
