It was a beautiful day today, the 21st of January 2019, meeting farmers and members of associations, meeting high school students, kindergarteners, and municipal representatives. We loved today, learning from elderly people who planted fig trees 80 years ago, and from volunteers who planted pomegranate trees at a newly constructed school. We were in villages, cities, in the Sahara and mountains. We are all home now.
The beauty and the everlasting memories from today–a day of national tree planting for the High Atlas Foundation and its partners in Morocco–are due to its great variation and amazing diversity, the heartfelt expressions, the hard work, the commitments to the future, and the thoughts about the past, all coming together in moments that bring life’s fulfillment.
You may not have joined us today. We hope you plant where you are, when you can. If you like to plant with us in Morocco before the end of March, please reach out and we will provide the support we are able.
The recurring theme that emerged today is that the life cycle, the growth and unknowable experiences that trees endure, also resonate with people, as we live not knowing what tomorrow will bring. And so we live in faith that our future will deliver ever-better and everlasting good for all ourselves and beautiful nature.
