At our project in Spain, spring has come early. Almond trees are beginning to flower. Blossom usually appears in February and March, when winter transitions into spring. But in the region of Andalucía, it’s getting warmer each year and so the trees are flowering a little earlier. Meanwhile, your trees are growing on the mountain slopes. This area has been badly affected by deforestation, and without trees, the temperature is unstable and the climate suffers. But thanks to your searches, we’re bringing trees back. So thank you ❤️ Photos by our partner @asociacionalvelal 👏🏼 #trees #spring #nature #spain

Women in Ghana are working together to make a living off trees. When we visited our project with @tree_aid, we also met the baobab collective 💚 By processing and selling the superfood known as baobab fruit, these women now earn more than their husbands. They are also best friends and help one another through difficult times. #WomensWave #superfood #baobab

A tree is not just a tree ☝🏾 It plays a specific and often important role in a community. In Ghana, we met a shea butter-producing collective who harvest, grind, boil, knead, and refine the nuts from the shea tree together. The revenue helps them pay for some of life’s essentials 💚 #superfood
