I just started the Bardic grade, and in the packet there was a booklet for the tree planting program. In my small little town (I just moved back here, after growing up here and being away for 30 years), there is one public park. It's mostly used for sporting activities, and that's a good thing, of course. After reading about grove planting, though, I decided to get some seedlings from the Arbor Day Foundation and have them planted in a small grove at the park. The place is nearly bare of trees, for all the sports fields. It won't be a proper sacred grove, though, because it's on public land. it's just something I want to do. We are having this year our 40th year class high school reunion, and out of 68 who graduated, nine have died. I thought to make the grove in honor and memory of my old friends, given by all of us still living. As each of us dies, another tree will be added to the grove, until there are 68. It will be a remembrance of when we were all together as friends. I think that's appropriate, and it is a nice first act as a beginning Bard. Later, I'd like to plant other ones around in the county, though where I live is very close to the Daniel Boone National Forest. I am very glad that I have taken this spiritual path.
