Sonoma County Redwood Reforest

Avant Gardens is a family run farm that participates in the California Forest Improvement Program. We have an existing forest management plan (FMP) registered with state and federal officials. With an FMP, we are able to gain funding to participate in reforestation on these lands which were devastated by years of logging, man-made fire, and over-grazing by ranchers.

Donations will be used to support the reforestation of the Sonoma County Redwood forest.


Campaign Goals

Our goal will be to plant on approximately 15 acres for the first year. Working as a crew of 10 – 15 people, we should be able to cover half an acre per day or more if we work 4-5 hours per day. This is reasonable. Therefore, we will plan to spend 4-6 weeks on this project. The more people that come, the faster we will work and the easier the project will be.


Volunteers Needed – Families Welcome

Volunteers are needed to assist in the following tasks:

  1. Scalping (clearing any debris/grass) of the areas that will be planted
  2. Digging holes
  3. Planting (Plant 2,000+ Redwood Seedlings and 500+ Douglas Fir Seedlings, depending on funding)
  4. Staking trees
  5. Additional labor needs

  • Earth Day Announcement: Launching the Sonoma County Redwood Reforestation Project

    April 22, 2014

    I would like to thank everyone involved with the Mintcoin Fund for helping to get this project launched.  We have a gracious host for this project: Avant Gardens in Cazadero, California.

    This project will require both donations and volunteers.  This is going to be an amazing opportunity for those who get involved.  I encourage anyone who wants to travel to Northern California and have a free place to camp for up to 4 weeks to consider this opportunity.  We are working with Avant Gardens to gain government funding to match any money raised for the purposes of reforestation.  In addition, some of the money raised will have to go towards food and necessities for the work crew of 10-15 people.  We would like to rotate workers, so anyone can volunteer for as long as they like.  We have plenty of good places to camp that are within safe fenced areas.  For more information please see the project page.

    The goal of the Northern California Mintcoin Reforestation Project is bring the community together through funding and volunteering to help restore the Coastal Redwoods of Sonoma County California. These lands were destroyed by logging, man-made fire, and animal grazing for the last 100 years. The Redwoods are the largest trees in the world. There are currently some that stand 350 feet tall. They are believed to have grown as tall as 1000 ft in prehistoric times. There are two species of Redwoods: the Sequoia and the Coast Redwood. We will be planting the Coast Redwood which is native to Sonoma Coast. In addition, we will also plant Douglas Fir trees, which are also native and grow in tandem with Redwoods.

    This property is part of the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms program, and is probably one of the few in the world that does actual reforestation projects. We are registered under Avant Gardens with Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms USA:

    We will be working with the NCRS, CalFire, the US Forest Service , and the Bureau of Land Management to match our funding.

The idea for a charity for crypto is far from new. But Mintcoin Fund is not a charity for crypto – it is a charity (endowment fund, technically) for bringing the attention of the crypto currency world to the importance of sustainable development. As the core developer said two months ago: we feel concerned about global warming, and we believe every daily action we can take to avoid making things get worse is a good deed. After a night of brainstorming, the name Mint came naturally for what we wanted to do. mintcoindev A money is more than a mean. It is an end. Some years ago, citizens of Western Europe decided to change their national currency for a common one, the euro. The consecutive outcries in several countries where an evidence that a money is not just a plumbing, not just a protocol. It is a symbol, something uniting (sumbolon). The same as a country raise patriotism with a common currency (like the USD for United States) or in France the currency known as sol is uniting people believing in local economy , we believe mintcoin can unite people willing to show their dedication to sustainable development. It is said one vote with one’s wallet. Let’s do it litterally! Operations The Mintcoin Fund is lead by a Board made up of between 3 and 9 members. The Fund plans to set up offices and operations around the world, to gather money to help finance sustainable development projects, big and small.
