It’s an old Native American tradition that when you take something from the Earth, you must put something back. An empowering and sustaining symbiotic relationship worldview. Earth Day April 22nd 2015 is a global “give back to Earth” event, an “offering” for all the planet gives us. The goal is to plant one billion seeds/trees. To participate, plant something that is organic, perennial and suitable to the growing conditions in your area. If the temperature or your living environment is not conducive to planting on April 22nd, start growing a plant indoors or commit to planting your tree once the outdoor temperature is warm enough. Nurture your plantings, like children, until they can sustain themselves on their own. It is important to keep a certain portion of the planet covered with forests as it is essential for regulating the distribution of rain and snow over the surface, thus, controlling the climate. Every tree planted will assist in stabilizing the climate and provide habitat for various species.
Earth Day, a day reserved every year to commemorate efforts to protect the environment. Events organized by Earth Day Network abound. Worthy efforts to support. These are some other organizations with information on tree planting in your area and across the globe, to purchase trees, or perhaps to make a donation.
