"You can make a lot of speeches, but the real thing is when you dig a hole, plant a tree, give it water, and make it survive." ― Wangari Maathai

Happy Earth Day! On this earth day we are celebrating our work of "keeping p**p in the loop" with our compost toilets and how that rich compost is now being used to plant a grove of Moringa trees at Kenya Connect and our partner schools. The Moringa leaves and seeds will be processed for tea and other products while providing shade and being a carbon off-set.

Thanks to our donors and 1treellion our students are following in the footsteps of Wangari Maathai.

Our "Trees of Hope" at Mwaasua are growing tall and strong. Today our friends in the northern hemisphere are celebrating the Winter Solstice. As we look towards the light to come, we are excited to see the Moringa Trees thriving and are anticipating the next level of the project to begin in 2021. A special thanks to the 1treellion Foundation for supporting this project.

Trees are the natural climate solution. It is our conviction that this can be done BUT we need to act with determination NOW. It is our mission to collectively raise enough funds to plant trees all over the world.

Scientists determine the age of one of Africa’s most famous trees

Scientists recently determined the age of one of Africa’s most famous trees, a 25-meter-tall baobab named “Big Tree.”

Because baobabs do not form regular tree rings, scientists analyzed Big Tree’s carbon decay to determine it was an impressive 1,150 years old.

How cool is that!
