Due to inclement weather, this has been pushed back a bit, but now the ground is nice and soft and easy to dig, so come on out for our first fruit tree planting party to get your hands dirty, and put a down payment on some delicious fruits 4 to 5 years hence.
Planting trees is a sacred activity in our family. My grandpa Doc planted thousands in his lifetime, as a ritual honoring those passed, and those yet to come. Trees connect generations; they're the antidote to our modern-day, fast-action world, requiring us to take a longer view of ourselves and our place in the universe.
A well-planted tree has been placed by caring hands into the earth, had a happy jig danced on its roots, and been toasted and celebrated afterwards by friends. We'll do all three, and hope you can join us. Ideally we can get started with planting instructions and logistics at 10 AM, and we'll plan to have a meal sometime around 2.
