Festival #33 is up

reflections (A), by camil tulcan

Every Festival of the Trees I learn a few new things, and this edition — #33, at local ecologist — is no exception. I learned about aster trees, tree silos, how to get trees to sprout in the Sudanese desert, what happens when a drought hits a swamp, and the ins and outs of sleeping in a treeboat, among other things. Georgia has put together a wonderfully diverse and ecologically informed festival. Go visit!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
