Monkey Puzzle Seeds

Here’s a barely edited conversation from Tree 69, (of 365), that I climbed with 43 other people including an 8 month pregnant woman! The material is becoming part of the book… It’s kind of a radio piece with some photos and a bit of video… 75 people next summer?
Also please sign this Woodland trust petition to unlock funds for tree planting.
And don’t forget the Log Book Christmas gift! Seen below… with more info here: www.uptreesbook.moonfruit.com
GROW YOUR OWN BAOBAB, MONKEY PUZZLE, GIANT SEQUOIA OR SPRUCE TREE – AND GET A BOOK!
So… I finally have to admit the book won’t be ready for Christmas when the Trafalgar Sq. tree arrives from Norway, so I’ve decided to make a gift that can be given in the interim to keep the project moving financially… and…
…I think I’ve made a nice little package, seen here and bought here.
THE LOG BOOK! A book token for when the book is finished inside a handmade log complete with a pot of seeding soil and tree seeds. You’ll get the Log Book before Christmas to shove under the tree and the book gets posted when it’s finished!
Tree seeds of your choice (Baobab, Monkey Puzzle, Sequoia or Spruce), a pot and seedling compost, a log bookmark book voucher and growing instructions all nestled in moss inside a home made log box! When the book is finished it gets sent to who ever you gift it to with their name printed inside! Sweet! Buy one here!
(get your Log book sent to you before Christmas and support the project).
If you buy one just nominate someone and their name will be printed in the book as a dedication.
There are loads more gift ideas at the crowd fund website too!
A quick update to tell you about crowd funding PHASE 2!
I’ve created a new website to continue crowd funding here. Please have a look and tell me if it works ok. Also please share it, and if you haven’t already – think about pre-ordering a book or print!
In phase one, £2700 was raised which is great! Not close to the target but loads of brilliant things came out of the whole process so thank you all for your support, comments and sharing of the project!
I’ve had a rethink of the budget and how the book will be delivered. All the info is on the new website.
I’ll be seeking grants, publishers and rich philanthropists who love trees and who like the sound of the Adventure and Manifesto UpTrees. Please also remember that I’m still looking for people to submit their drawn trees to illustrate the book alongside my thousands of beautiful images of trees, diaries and transcribed conversations. Please spread the word! Thank you!
