We very much hope you will stay involved in the Climate CoLab community. Please support and comment on other proposals on the platform and continue to submit your ideas into our contests.

Keep up the great work. And thank you again for being a part of this mission to harness the world's collective efforts to develop and share innovative climate change solutions.

Additional comments:

Very practical approach. The GHG emissions reduction from rotting seeds is not compelling, but the sequestration from trees is very compelling. This obviously has to be a "think globally, act locally" type of program, because of biodiversity, invasive species, local tastes, etc. The religion angle could be a help for program rollout or a hindrance to rollout in secular schools/societies.

This is a noble endeavour but, unfortunately, untenable. Tree planting campaigns in developing countries, even those spearheaded by the local forest department, have not achieved their objectives due to lack of resources and commitment.

All the best
