The Peace Forest is a project undertaken by the members of the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) that invites people of all faiths to foster community and heal the earth in a world facing unprecedented social and environmental challenges.

The Peace Forest, an initiative of  BridgeWorks,  hosted by the Colorado Interfaith Power & Light, and sponsored by the Abrahamic Initiative, is a hands-on tree-planting project that will take place in Denver on 10/10/10 to coincide with the International Day of Climate Action sponsored by 350.org.

Together, we will plant 100 shrubs and saplings along the Sand Creek Regional Greenway to mitigate climate change, purify the air, protect the soil, beautify an industrial neighborhood and transform our future. This stretch of greenway will be a living, growing symbol of our common religious values of stewardship of the creation, as well as our cooperative ability to restore the earth. We rejoice in this profound opportunity to work and grow together.  Please join us!

Detailed schedule:  1:00 pm, check in & refreshments; 1:30, religious blessings of the trees; 2-4:45, planting; 4:45, closing.
