Love Trees is an environmental initiative rooted in a philosophy that kids need trees. Love Trees strives to give as many children at schools and orphanages around the world as we can a tree of their own. It's about supporting environmental education programs for children by giving kids a tree to plant at their home or school that is native to their region ~ and an opportunity to connect with nature and contribute positively to their world.
This blog is an effort by Andrea to raise awareness about environmental education and to fulfill a lifetime goal to give as many children as she can a tree. Andrea is also the founder of The ChariTree Foundation - Canada's environmental education charity for children.
Let’s Get Kids Outside
Today many children are disconnected from the outdoors. If children are going to make a lifelong commitment to protect the environment for themselves and future generations, they first need time to explore the wonders of nature.
One of the best ways to teach environmental education is to give kids a tree of their own to plant. It's about learning to care for something, self-sufficiency, reforestation, trees as future food sources and so much more.
The Love Trees post-disaster reLEAF tree-replanting and children’s environmental education campaign is a powerful way to bring life back to communities devastated by natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes.
Love Trees may be small but we have a lot of heart – and access to trees for children around the world.
Inspiring and uplifting, The Wish Trees is rooted in the idea that every child can help make the world a better place. Pre-readers and early readers will love turning the pages to reveal children planting Wish Trees and making wishes. Kids will discover the wonder of trees and enjoy searching for different animals and signs with each new page. BUY NOW
“There’s something so hopeful about planting trees,” said Jones. “I’ll never forget the children we planted trees with in Africa and I’ll never stop trying to bring more children trees.” ~ Andrea Koehle Jones
