I am a veterinarian, farmer and permaculture teacher on Manitoulin Island,Ontaio,Canada. I am in the process of reclaiming land used for the over-grazing of cattle and restoring it to a healthy, balanced ecosystem and productive Food Forest. I am planting 1000 useful trees this year to add to the 1000 planted last year on my 200 acres. I am pleased to know about the Community Agroecology Network (CAN) and the positive work it does in Mesoamerica. Their mission is strongly related to my mission to restore my farm and teach others about permaculture and agroforestry methods , since the CAN partners are planting shade trees for growing their coffee in a more healthy ecosystem. Trees are vital for the long term health of the soil and our planet in general. I like the feeling that we are working together for the earth, in Canada, Mexico or Costa Rica. Congratulations to CAN for doing such good work, and keep on planting! Dr Mary Yett
