Festival 42: seven billion new trees!
The 42nd edition of the Festival of the Trees is now live at Via Negativa. The title refers to a new initiative by Nobel laureate and tree-planting guru Wangari Maathai, and tree-planting forms the leitmotif for this month’s festival. I was gratified by the response to my somewhat pathetic pleading last month for more participation, and I hope we’re able to continue this trend in the months to come. Please remember to blog, tweet, Facebook (is that a verb yet?), or otherwise link to this new edition… and no, I’m not saying that because I want the link-juice, honest! It’s all about the trees, and reaching more people with our message of appreciation and reverence for trees and forests.
