Exciting news from our GTI UK branch!

Welcome to the UK, Jennifer Coyne!

Jennifer has been on our team for about a year. First, she was the coordinator in New Zealand. While there, she organized this exciting tree-planting day.

Now, she has moved to the UK where she is joining forces with Anna Colao and Rowena Field!
Thank you for being on our team wherever you go, Jennifer! We are lucky to have you helping the Global Tree Initiative in the UK!

Rowena shares the following updates, happening in the UK:

1. Working closely with the Tibetan Community in the UK, two beautiful planting sites have been secured. In the Autumn, the Tibetan community will fund and plant 113 trees in each of these locations!
Have a look at this video, for more information about the 113 trees. To access the video, use this code: 113trees

2. With Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, a second Woodland project is being developed on a large nature reserve near York. A local blind and partially sighted group hopes to help with planting here in the Autumn.

3. A fantastic week of eco-educational activities for children took place in May, at Land of Joy retreat center. This was led by Anna Colao, with the intention to develop these activities further! Land of Joy also has a major tree-planting project, with 700 trees already planted, and 400 more to be planted in the Autumn / Winter!

Last but not least, our UK coordinators, Anrich Bester, the GTI project coordinator, and Tenzin Metok from the Medicine Buddha App recently had a fruitful meeting! Tree-planting in the UK was discussed, as well as a fresh promotion of the Medicine Buddha App!

Thank you for your hard work and dedication, team UK! We appreciate everything that you do. We look forward to hearing from you more.
