haiti: six months later...

Media_httpwwwplantwit_bszdc

It's crazy to think that the devastating earthquake in Haiti was almost 6 months ago. While it is far from many of our minds, there is still a lot of recovery work still to be done. I was glad to hear that groups like Plant with Purpose are still hard at work in Haiti. Since the earthquake, they have "employed over 2,100 farmers... to plant over 170,000 trees and construct over 260 miles of soil erosion barriers." (Some of you may remember Plant with Purpose joining us for an art show last year.)

Monday, July 12 is the anniversary of the terrible quake. On that day I will post a review of Tending to Eden by Scott Sabin, the Executive Director of Plant with Purpose-which I've been hoping to do for some time now.

Stay tuned. Support the work of Plant with Purpose. Read Sabin's book.
