Speak for the Trees.
I agree with editorial director Hank Will's wise notes ("Common Ground," April/May 2018) that we all must come together to solve global problems. I've found that MOTHER EARTH NEWS always does a great job sharing important information and connecting its readers. It has to be everyone's responsibility to grow food for our families and friends, and to share inexpensive and easy ways of overcoming challenges to protect our environment.
I myself try to pass on my knowledge to help others whenever possible. I also love to give away some of my young fruit and nut trees so that others can find their passion for growing and caring for plants. I use pruned branches to create new trees and then give them away to friends and family. This way, I'm not only helping grow new trees, but am also getting others interested in caring for these trees, and helping them become responsible for their own food sources. The more people who are interested in growing trees, the better protected our environment will be.
