Step 2: Plant your Flag!
Plant the native tree and the flag in your front yard! To learn about caring for your native tree, please click here.
As you plant your flag next to the tree, say:
"I hereby reclaim this land for nature!"
Don't forget to ask your neighbor to do the same.
Planting a flag next to a tree in one's home front yard is the performative act that defines this art piece. Using the powerful symbol of a flag, the participant is being proactive in helping rebuild the native tree canopy that one stood on that very place. It's a reverse conquest, returning a portion of that now developed parcel of land back to nature.
The flag also serves to remind the participant *(along with friends and neighbors) of this important eco-action.
