Dear Friends in Green,
Let’s start this week’s green letter with a thud. Thud! Thud!
This thud is from an axe as it slams into Prunus Africana. Dozens of thuds later, the Prunus Africana, an indigenous African tree comes tumbling down with a final, thunderous and tragic thud. This specific tree, somewhere in western Kenya, has been growing for fifty years. Being indigenous, trees like it have been growing in Kenya and all over Africa for centuries. They hold within their roots and branches Africa’s resilient story.
