Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA
Trees, Water and People spent a very long time preparing for the Santo Domingo Tribe tree planting week. They have formed very real relationships through the amazing communication efforts and warmth of their team, and i am lucky to have had the honor of doing work with them! They truly care about the disproportionately felt environmental stresses which indigenous communities have been struggling with in light of harmful ecologically changing trends, in this case, as a result of an immense wildfire. James Calabasas spoke in his native language the entire day, as this was his tribe- i admit i was in awe and even a bit mystified by his and the entire tribes' ability to connect so deeply to their roots while we were all together digging into the soil to invest in the sustenance of these new living roots. After the opening prayer, we worked hard in the hot sun under cautious and detailed instruction about proper protocols for the silvicultural needs of the species, Douglas Fir. I heard about the geographical extend to which the non-profit performs from the Executive Director, Sebastian Africano, and was very impressed to hear international collaborative support was not uncommon for them. My utmost respect and kind wishes are for their team, along with Valerie Small and Jose Chalit to always grow in opportunities to plant trees, to grow, and to thrive.
