We’d love to share with you some of the many actions and activities of our flourishing global network. From tree planting in Kenya and Nepal, to singing and raising funds in Sweden, to our women’s circles - the Groves. Here you will find the stories of treesisters around the world; the ways that they are nourishing themselves and the restorative actions they are taking for the Earth. We hope that they will touch your heart and fire your imagination, and inspire your own actions on behalf of the trees and all life. For more stories from our network, please visit our blog
