Love Letters to Trees
Love Letters To Trees
This workshop is about expressing and spreading appreciation for trees. Stop and marvel. Share the awe. Give others a reason to pause and notice.
Without trees we don’t have oxygen to breathe. The soil washes away, the rain patterns change, the koala disappears.
We will go for a walk among the trees in Dorrigo’s parklands. Along the way we’ll listen to odes to trees and recite some together. You’ll be asked to notice and admire the trees and choose your favourite and write a love letter, some words of appreciation, a poem or use an already existing quote or poem, and write these onto paper with a waterproof marker. We’ll tie or wheatpaste these Love Letters to the trees so that passersby will also notice and appreciate these trees.
