Shanti Pierce, President of Florida-Caribbean Chapter of American Bamboo Society, says: “We are honored to host the annual conference celebrating bamboo. Florida is a unique climate and can grow many varieties of this exceptional species. There is so much untapped potential for bamboo in America, and this conference brings the best minds together to learn and grow together.”
Bamboo is a fast growing biomass and has the potential to be used as a renewable source for agro -forestry production. It sequesters large amounts of C02 and can be useful in mitigating degraded soils and cleaning water. It provides privacy buffers and resources far beyond what most folks know about. America is woefully underutilizing this incredible fast-growing resource, and the annual American Bamboo Society conference is an incredible opportunity to learn about how to grow, build, weave, and utilize this potent plant effectively.
