It was such an honor to meet Joan from oldgrowthforest.net devoted to the preservation of primary forest trees…a lady of my own heart!! Gamini painted these Toco Toucans in the late 80’s and made this limited edition print which we are donating to her organization Old Growth Forest….this is a tree living in Yakashima forest, Japan where we hiked with our son Beau. Such a visit of the same hearts…Tree huggers unite!! https://www.facebook.com/Old-Growth-Forest-Network-1121382…/
In addition I had the pleasure of reading Joan Maloof’s book Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest available at: http://www.oldgrowthforest.net/books. I thoroughly enjoy Joan’s writing style, devotion to the primary forest and the gifts that these legacies bring to our lives. Her stories are beautifully illustrated and devoted to the importance of the web of life.
