    While we plant a tree, we exercise which is excellent for our health, we also distract our mind and allow us to be alone with ourselves and get closer to God.

  • Reflection Question
    Nature Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations are just a few examples. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    Marta Lebron 10/17/2020 3:11 PM
    I like foraging to obtain our own food.
