Forest Defenders (Christine)
Hello Cortes Islanders & Visitors,
Fifty letters were handwritten to John Horgan at the farmer's market on Quadra last week asking for a permanent halt of old growth harvesting.
Let's match or exceed that at our Friday market this week. Look for our table outside, buzzing with energy & heart. We will have paper, pens and pre-stamped envelopes, and children are welcome to add their voices and pictures.
There will be a collection jar for the Fairy Creek forest defenders, and an opportunity to find out more about how to support the people at Fairy Creek from other Cortes Islanders who have been there.
Climate stability, biodiversity and our very lives need the remaining old growth trees and forests.
