How do we want to be remembered?

How do we want to be remembered?

We were very inspired by hearing Greta Thunberg address the huge crowd in Bristol yesterday. You can watch her speech here.

The bit that really struck a chord with me was "There will be a time when we will look back, and ask ourselves what we did, right now. How do we want to be remembered?"

How about being remembered for being a part of a huge tree planting initiative? How about helping More Trees BANES scale up and achieve much more than it already doing? How about helping the council achieve their target of planting 100,000 trees in 3 years?

We can't do this on our own. We need your help.

We've started having a monthly MeetUp, which is a great chance for you to learn what we've been up to, and what we have planned. We are keen to get your input and ideas, and if you want to get involved in helping us to organise ourselves, this is a great way to connect.

At the very least, you can meet like-minded people in the fab surroundings of The Bell :-)

Speaking personally, I want to be able to look my children in the eye and confidently tell them I did all I could. Tree planting alone won't solve climate change, but it's a vital part of the effort required.

Come and join us and take positive action now.
