What are we bequeathing this child? His inheritance is a pittance of what he deserves.

His scarf reads “reboisement,” French for “reforestation.” If we are to bequeath him his birthright, we must replant him his endowment. In the devastated landscape of Haiti’s Massif Lasel, where he lives, the organization Fondation Seguin is working to stem the tide of habitat destruction by replanting broadleaf forests for the benefit of generations to come. Here in Oakland, California, Urban Releaf does the same important work. Our children reap what we sow, so let’s plant our seeds wisely.
