#TelosTrees: Together Planting Hope for a Better Future

Today, we’re disconnected. Reconnect with #TelosTrees.

#TelosTrees connects us to what matters. To life, to nature, to our hopes and dreams, and to each other. Commit to nurturing new life. Share hope for a new world. And spread a little joy, too. 

The idea: An olive tree takes 10 years to bear fruit. Planting a tree, some flowers, or taking care of a houseplant is an act of faith. Especially in times like these. 

Bring new life into your community. Have faith that a time post-Corona will soon come. And re-imagine what our post-Corona world could look like. 

Plant a tree and share your #TelosTrees stories with us so we can together help inspire each other!

#TelosTrees in 3 Steps:

*Plant: Plant a tree, some flowers, or get a new house plant. We’ve curated a list of places you can order plants while in quarantine below.

*Share: Take a picture/video of it and you. Write a short story about what you hope for as you commit to take care of this life. Share it with the hashtag #TelosTrees and tag us!

*Give: Sponsor new life in places facing difficulties greater than ours. For $13, you can sponsor an olive tree at Tent of Nations, near Bethlehem. Be sure to write “Sponsor a tree” in the notes section on their PayPal site or in the memo line of your check.

 


Online plant buying options:

Etsy
Urban Stems
The Sill
Terrain

Your local garden center if you have access to one.

Amazon is also normally a good, economical option, but as they are prioritizing orders it may not arrive for a while.

For trees and larger plants or projects, check out the large online selection from Nature Hill or your local Garden Center, Lowe’s, or Home Depot (you can look online and call in, assuming those stores are still open in your area). 

Donation instructions for Tent of Nations:
