New life…new hope

A forest in the car, taking delivery of the first batch of the season, 225 new trees……

In an attempt to mitigate the carbon burnt on travel to retreat in San Francisco, our Diamond Approach retreat group, the IRG, regularly contribute to a ‘Trees for Travel’ fund to purchase trees…. 

And here they are!

I planted a few red beeches at Easter but it was still a little dry, the long summer meant we haven’t had much Autumn rain yet. We’ll be planting another 3-400 over the next few months.

This year we’ve also been helped by a large donation by Desert Dharma who raised the funds from their Sky-Mind insight meditation trip to Bhutan. 

Its a fantastic feeling of empowerment to plant all these trees and regrow the lungs of the planet!
