Welcome to our second TREESERVE 365 newsletter, and thank you for being a supporter of the challenge to plant as many trees as we can in 365 days!
We hope this newsletter finds you well and, if you’re based in the northern hemisphere, that you’re enjoying the spring season!
For those of you in the southern hemisphere, we wonder if you are planning some tree-planting activities as you head into the cooler months?
As you know, putting some thought into where and when you plant your trees makes good sense if you want to give your trees and seedlings the best chance of success!
In this newsletter, we report on the first of our monthly meetings and share some facts and figures about the wide-ranging benefits of planting trees.
So, what’s been happening at TREESERVE 365?
Tuesday, 25th April, was the first of our monthly online meet-ups – our first opportunity to really start to dig into what TREESERVE 365 is and aspires to be.
We were joined by a small group of people for a conversation about tree planting and community projects.
It was inspiring to learn of everyone’s willingness to take practical action on the climate crisis and desire to make a difference in their local communities or communities in other parts of the world.
Reflecting on the meeting helped us consider how TREESERVE 365 can uniquely contribute to and complement the many exemplary conservation projects that already exist.
We know that we want to help people plant the right trees in the right place at the right time – and commit to taking care of the trees they plant. 🌱
All tree planting action is acceptable! Whether you plant trees independently, as part of a group, or in partnership with professional organisations – with family, friends, neighbours, colleagues, clients etc. It all counts!
We know that you can inspire others through your actions and through sharing your motivations, experiences, successes, and challenges – and that we can support each other to learn and have more impact.
So please get in touch to share your tree-planting aspirations and successes with us so we can share them with others!
And let us know if you’ve already planted some trees since 25th March 2023, and we’ll keep a collective tally.
Our next monthly meeting will be held on Zoom on Wednesday, 24th May 2023, at 11 pm GMT.
We hope to welcome guest experts and provide a forum for people to meet, share information and resources, and ask for help. 😊
You’ll be able to:
- to find out more;
- share your ideas, plans, and challenges;
- offer support, expertise, contacts, and resources;
- meet others;
- get involved.
You can also encourage friends, family, colleagues or clients to join our mailing list by registering on our website: https://treeserve365.org/, where you can also find links to our social media channels.
Until next month, here’s to strong backs and dirty hands!
From Rachael, Amel, and the TREESERVE 365 team. 🌱🌍😁
