Love-me-back TREE!

Hi! I started the Love-me-back TREE project before the International climate conference COP26 in Glasgow in 2021. However, at COP26 the world made new promises to stop deforestation.

The Love-me-back TREE offers a small opportunity to participate in this important climate initiative. That’s my hope. Tape your tree to your desk, window sill or elsewhere. Let’s start a conversation!

Here’s the story about my tree that got me started on this project!

Many thanks to Rinck Heule, Shannon Gerard, Kenny Lam, and Natasha Overduin for suggesting Richard Power’s novel Overstory. The project poster and story was produced on a Riso printer with soy-based ink on responsibly sourced paper at OCADU.
