Planters Of The World,
Your generosity and support empowered us to plant 1.000 sessile oaks in “The forest of Family and Friends”. This creates a forest area of 1.500 m2.
Having in mind that, at the time of planting, the amount of donations was slightly below EUR 300 we have overdelivered more than 3-fold our original promise to create 1m2 of forest area for each euro that reaches our account.
The timeline of works:
15 March - Greta Thunberg called for a global strike for future. Heading Greta Thunberg’s call, Land Art Association was one of only 9 organizations/cities that mobilized in Romania. As far as we are aware we were the only ones in the world/Planet Earth that called for a ‘planting strike’.
While other organizations marched, we planted. To be fully honest, on 15 March, we only prepared the ground for planting. #PlantingStrike #Fridaysforfuture #Climatestrike
21 March - International Day of Forests
On a day like this, one is destined to plant forests. So, we picked up the seedlings, transported them to planting sight and started planting in Darjiu, Romania.
By the evening of 23 March 1.000 sessile oaks were planted. #IntForestDay #UNForests
Throughout the planning and planting process, we relied on the expertise of the Forestry Authorities. We are grateful for their advice and support.
The event had a nice coverage in the Hungarian press and in the Hungarian speaking press in Romania. Here are a few articles:
We hope that we can count not only on your continued support but also for spreading the word about our efforts and achievements.
That’s all for now, we will be back soon. In the meantime, stay true to yourselves. Stay as you are, good enough care and brave enough to act.
