Hi, I'm Dr Jon Morley and to celebrate 50 years of my life on Mother Earth’, I'm raising funds for Precious Tree NPO to plant 5000 trees.
THE ‘TREE-CYCLING’ PROJECT
- 50 years
- 500 km
- 5000 'indigenous forest food' trees
The Tree-Cycling Project involves a series of cycling events between May 2020 and May 2021 and this “Tour de Burn’, will begin shortly after the lockdown.
Funds will be used to:
- Plant indigenous 'forest food trees' that can be used by local communities for a range of direct medicinal and health benefits, and will also nourish animal and bird life in the area.
The natural regenerative growth of the existing forests that have been affected by continued growth and development and climate changes disasters (droughts/fires) and,
There is a growing need to spread valuable information about the re-integration of humans back into nature, natural cycles and natural medicines.
Planting out indigenous forest and food trees, local medicinal plants and shrubs (as found on our forest floors) and seasonal food gardens are all essential to our overall health and wellbeing.
Now, more than ever, we need to renew our respect for Mother Nature and gift her trees by the gazillion, to help restore the lungs of Gaia and in so doing raise the concentration of phytoncides in the atmosphere which assist in raising our own levels of immunity.
It costs R200 to grow and plant out a single precious tree,
Absolutely any donation is most welcome. Thank you.
THANK YOU TO COYNE HEALTHCARE for their donation of R10,000!
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the Precious Tree NPO.*
