Greenpop’s media partner, Makhulu, won the United Nations Forum on Forests Short Film Awards for the Africa region, for this film which they produced last year when Greenpop launched Trees for Zambia, a reforestation and eco-awareness project which began with a 3-week tree planting event. I love the solar cookers they produced to demonstrate and alternate method of food production.
A huge fan of Greenpop and what they achieve, as well as the strong message they send, I wanted to share this. I sponsored Katie Stuart aka Dunda Girl and she lovingly planted two trees for me. My hope is that they grow tall and strong and stand on as firm reminders that trees matter.
To quote Greenpop’s Misha Teasdale, ‘If you reach for the stars, you won’t come up with a handful of mud’.
To volunteer to join the 2013 Trees for Zambia volunteer program between 7 and 28 July, there’s more info right here. I’m hoping to get there for a week.
