Tree Planting

Planting trees is healthy for our environment and also for the people that plant them. It is especially healthy for youth having a hands-on contribution to better their world.

For the past four years a group of us plan a tree-planting event with over 3,800 trees planted by groups of 60-100 people participating. Of this group, at least a third of the participants were youth.

Commemorative Peace Tree

A commemorative tree for Peace was planted in close proximity to the Monument Peace Dove situated above the Mutart Conservatory in Edmonton. A brass plate has been placed beside the tree naming it ‘Peace Tree,’ and subtitled ‘for all that passes by’. It will be visible by those travelling the new LRT line along Connors Road behind the Mutart Conservatory.

It was Avau Fast that inspired me to plant the Peace Tree. For many years this senior has been very active in the Edmonton community helping other people through organisations that have the same focus for community. Avau grew up in the shadows of Mahatma Gandhi who was Godfather to her mother. Although Avau did not know Gandi directly, his influence was passed down through her parents and grandparents and Gandi’s innate desire to cultivate peace and well-being has been deeply ingrained within Avau’s very existence.

Follow your dreams and inspire others along the way. This will lead to many meaningful relationships and experiences. ~ Author Unknown
