I turn 60 on 19 January and in gratitude and acknowledgment of the support and nourishment provided by the Earth during those 60 years, I'd like to plant 60 trees. That's it in a nutshell.
Some of my best and earliest memories involved trees. Sitting reading in the huge oak tree on the lawn, munching guavas in the guava tree, the beautiful jacarandas and flowers full of bees, and growing up on a farm full of citrus trees. Trees and forests continue to be a refuge, they nurture me and provide comfort.
I'd like to be able to give the earth a tree for each year I've been alive to acknowledge both my dependence on the earth and to express my gratitude for surviving this long, something which would not have been possible without trees.
I will make up the short fall. Mega thanks. xxx
