Trees For Birthdays
Trees For Birthdays is a new social enterprise led by our local climate action champion – Jen Newall. Jen is a climate scientist turned storyteller and climate campaigner and she has been active within the local community since returning from Stockholm (where she was employed at Stockholm University). Together with Shamim Zawadi – a fellow ‘Green Warrior’ and friend from Tanzania – Jen has recently co-founded Trees For Birthdays.
Trees For Birthdays is a philosophy, a mindset, a way of lifeJen Newall
While growing trees is at the heart of Trees For Birthdays there is so much more to their work. “Trees For Birthdays is a philosophy, a mindset, a way of life…as much as it is an organisation that facilites and supports the planting of trees. We are all about connection; our activities help you to connect with yourself, with others, with nature, and with culture. All in a fun way that empowers and inspires action to ensure a better future for all.”
You can learn more about TfB’s at www.tfb.earth – and if you want to chat with Jen about TfB she will be at the Scarecrow Fest, so please to pop along and say hello, learn more about TfB and how you can get involved – she would love to hear your ideas as to what TfB can do in our local community.
Look out for some of the workshops and activities Jen will be hosting throughout the festival too.
