I've been providing logistic support for ReForest London since 2009. At that point, there were only a couple paid employees. In the past decade, they've grown in staff size, and ability, bringing thousands of trees into London and giving us an opportunity to connect with tree planting while improving plant literacy. I personally have delivered over 100,000 organisms to the city of London on their behalf. While other organizations operate on big budgets, with CEOs in the sunshine club, ReForest London consistently delivers value to the London community, in a palpable, humble, long lasting way. Their team is extremely committed, passionate and able to put the rubber to the road. They have just been given control over the most significant environmental area in the city, in the ponds, and have big plans that will improve sustainability efforts in our community.
In short, the humanity, dignity and growth I have seen and experienced alongside ReForest London have impacted me in ways I can't even comprehend. Best way to combat climate change - plant billions of trees. Because "A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."
Thank you for your consideration.
