Dear Friends of our Planet,

On September 9th at 1:30, Roots & Wings is participating in an Interfaith Blessing of the Trees in Dobbs Ferry. A developer has purchased 5 acres of land and is planning to cut down 352 trees. Some of these trees are hundreds of years old and the woods they create include the habitats of many species, all of whom will be displaced once destruction/construction begins. See the slideshow on the right for more information. 

This Blessing has been fashioned after a Buddhist Ordination of the Trees in recognition of their right to life. 

Please join us to bless these trees and this land and help us bear witness to the sanctity of life.
