Planting Trees in Tahiti: A Reflection on the Year 2022

Planting Trees in Tahiti: A Reflection on the Year 2022

Our tree-planting community from the French Polynesian island of Tahiti has had an incredible year in 2022, dedicated to planting and nurturing trees. Through collaborative efforts between local entities such as the Poihere te Natura collective, les Petits Ateliers Mindfulness, the Maison Vehiatama Montessori Tahiti, Naropa Center of Tahiti, Taimoana School, College of Punaauia, and the international NGO Peace and Kindness in Action, the Peace Tree program has made a significant impact.

Nurturing Nature through Tree Planting

The primary goal of these various tree plantings was to raise awareness about the importance of regenerating and caring for nature in all its forms. By emphasizing the interdependence between humans and their surroundings, including plants, insects, animals, and the elements, we aimed to sensitize citizens, parents, and children to the beauty and significance of our natural environment.

The trees we planted were dedicated to the children, allowing them to experience the joy of picking and tasting delicious fruits, savoring the fragrances of flowers and trees, and learning the art of planting and nurturing. After all, we protect what we love.

Planting for the Benefit of Tomorrow

Our deepest concern is that future generations might become disconnected from nature, preferring screens over the wonders of the natural world. By planting and dedicating trees, we hope to instill in children a lasting appreciation for the environment, fostering a strong connection that will carry them through life.

The Magic of Tree Planting

The act of planting trees brought us immeasurable joy through the power of collaboration, sharing, and witnessing the intrinsic motivation within children. We reveled in the earth’s touch, the scent of damp soil, and the sparkle of delight in the eyes of young ones discovering the magic of planting trees. Additionally, it was heartwarming to witness adults reconnect with their childlike nature and rediscover the beauty of all living things. Through these acts, we not only plant trees but also cultivate kindness, generosity, and benevolence, setting an example for others.

What we love most about planting trees is the profound connection it creates with nature. Contributing to the well-being of future generations and sharing this magnificent gesture with others fills our hearts with pure happiness.

A Collective Effort for a Greener Future

The collaboration between environmental citizen collectives, public schools, private companies, and an international NGO stands as a testament to the power of collective action for the love of trees. Regardless of age, gender, origin, or social background, there are no barriers when it comes to picking up a shovel and lending a helping hand. It is this inclusive spirit that allows us to pave the way for a better future.

Empowering the Children of Tomorrow

We firmly believe in giving the children of tomorrow a fighting chance. The world needs small and big actions to protect our Earth and make a meaningful contribution to the planet we call home.
