The benefits of a forest in the heart of our cities. 

These small patches of habitat are an oasis for urban biodiversity, a powerhouse for urban cooling, restorative for soil health resourceful carbon sinks, and a wellbeing hub for community to connect with nature. Using an effective planting method involving soil enrichment and a dense planting structure, Tiny Forests grow up to 10 times faster than traditional forests and become up to 100 times more biodiverse than monoculture forests. 

We believe they can make a real difference in Australia 

Earthwatch is championing Tiny Forests in Australia, and engaging the local community to help plant, maintain and conduct important research, to better understand the benefits these tiny and mighty forests provide.
