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.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.
