TreeSisters is counting down to International Women’s Day by offering daily conversations, personal tools, and sources of inspiration to empower you to explore and deepen your listening to the natural world, even if that is something totally new to you.
Day 3 ~ Trees as Medicine
Welcome to Day 3 of this series exploring what it means to #breakthebias and connect with, and uplift, the voice of nature.
Today, we are delighted to be joined by Teresa Gitonga of International Tree Foundation (ITF). Teresa joins Tree Partnership Manager, Madeleine Scordellis as she discusses the relationship between people and the ecosystems around Mount Kenya.
By supporting TreeSisters you are supporting ethical, community led reforestation.
Teresa is a constant source of inspiration for the TreeSisters network. She is an active member of the Nest community and an incredible example of someone who not only dedicates herself to restoring forests for the benefit of the Earth and local communities, but also ensures to uplift and involve women in these initiatives. In this video, Teresa discusses the medicine of the trees, the local knowledge that is linked to the forests, and how TreeSisters’ support through ITF has helped restore these vital ecosystems.
Join us tomorrow when we journey to the forest floor with TreeSisters Grove Tender, Sharon Blomme.
We’d also love you to get involved by tagging us on socials with your own tools, images, and inspiration for deepening your connection to the Earth using the hashtag #TreeSistersbreakthebias.
