I love where I live and have decided that if I want to keep loving it I have to be involved in making sure it is loveable. So I adopted a tree. Its easy, there is really no paper work. I just said “Hey tree, you’re mine!” I gave it an area that looks too lovely to pile garbage up in or park your bike and when mother nature is not dumping water on us, I give my tree a drink. I encourage you to look around your neighbourhood and adopt a tree too. In a city that seems to be running out of money and resources to move it forward in a good green evolved way, I am taking matters into my own hands. For my neighbours, for the kids and definitely for myself because I grew up in a province where in the 1950s women chained themselves around a tree to save it. Sometimes roads don’t need to be straight and sometimes we need to move around in our environment instead of thru it.
