I embarked on a journey to the Western side of Kenya 2 weeks ago, along the Rift Valley the landscape changes and the canopy of naturally growing forests covers the entire land. One noticeable feature along the roads in the area is the growing number of greenhouses that upon questioning, I was told farmers are embracing due to the inconsistent rainfall patterns in Kenya. It dawned on me if I don’t join the voices that amplify the need for reforestation worldwide, we may end up losing 70% of the Biosphere.
The 5 tree challenge is among the listed events for the UNEP global World Environment Day 2021.
Africa’s first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize made a very powerful statement and lived up to it:
“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.
That’s what makes the difference – Wangari Maathai”.
I am joining the cause in fighting against climate change by planting more trees, Join The Steve Down #5treechallenge across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. Join the cause in restoring our environment.
