Nurture Thursday – Did you know?

I’m not sure I can find something a beautiful as On Dragonfly Wing with Buttercup Tea, but I’m going to try!

Nurt Thur – Did you know?

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that one person cannot make a difference.

One Person Laid the Seeds for an Entire Forest

Sebastião Salgado grew up in Minas Gerais, Brazil—full of beautiful rain-forests. He left  to become a photographer, and returned to his hometown, in 2000, to discover that only 0.5% of forest remained. Salgado founded Instituto Terra in 1998, planting more than 2 million seedlings of more than 290 species of trees and plants. In 20 years, 1,500 acres of rainforest have been recovered, and 293 species of plants, 15 reptile species, 172 bird species, 15 amphibian species, and 33 mammal species have returned.
