We’re back at Hou Ngahere for a week of tree planting…..
Our Diamond Approach retreat group, the IRG, has committed to plant trees to offset the carbon emissions used in attending the two retreats in California each year. Called “Trees for Travel“, the scheme really has something tangible to show for it now with the arrival from Titoki Nurseries in Nelson of 220 eco sourced native trees. It’s a simple scheme where every dollar goes directly towards the trees in the ground. They’ve been paid for by donations into the “Trees for Travel” fund.
It’s not going to save the world – but every drop makes the ocean, and it feels really good to be making such a positive contribution to enriching the ecosystem – knowing also that they’re protected forever by the covenant on the land.
More updates on the planting progress to come!
