Call for Submissions – Festival #22
The April edition of the Festival of the Trees will be our first to appear on a non-Anglophone blog. Árvores Vivas em Nossas Vidas is one of a growing number of Lusophone tree blogs, and Juliana promises a fully bilingual festival post. Send all tree-related links, regardless of language of origin, to arvoresvivas [at] gmail [dot] com by March 28, or use the online submission form.
