This is a beautiful video which I found posted on the Pachamama blog. One man in Peru 20 years ago, realized that the way his community was cutting down the forest to farm for a couple years, then move on to a new plot and repeat the process, was unsustainable. So he decided to begin growing trees from seeds and replanting the forest. Along that path he figured out how to farm sustainably. Now he shares his knowledge, and seedlings with other communities, passing along his knowledge and hopeful that his grandchildren will be able to enjoy the shade of the trees he plants today. What a gift this gentle man is for all of us. A planet healing hero. Filled with gratitude………
