There’s never been a better time to teach kids that they can make the world a better place simply by taking an interest in their environment and making greener choices. 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.Kids are losing touch with nature. These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves. Let’s give kids GREEN POWER – the power to make the world a better place!Children need trees and there’s so much to learn from nature. One of the best ways to learn about nature and the environment is to plant a tree of your own and watch it grow.
How to request seedlings for your school, camp or children’s organization:
Teachers and children’s organization leaders can request trees for their kids every Spring. The window to order trees for Spring 2015 tree planting projects with kids will open in March 2015. Check back with this website in March to order.
“I found the Love Trees website of Andrea Koehle Jones. Andrea is Executive Director of Love Trees as well as the ChariTree Foundation. What a godsend! She responded promptly, agreed that she thought my projects were great, and said that she was happy to provide trees for both of my projects as well as shipping (so there will be no cost to me or our school). After receiving such an exceptional response from Andrea, I did a little searching, and found out that she is also the author of the children’s environmental picture book The Wish Trees.” ~ Ryan Flood, Visual Arts Teacher, Martin Collegiate.
