Greening the Planet with Willie Nelson
Friday, September 8, 2006 ... Plant a Tree USA and Willie Nelson spoke face-to-face and shared their eye-to-eye views on greening the planet!
As an honored guest in the audience, Plant a Tree USA felt the environment abundant in delight and peace as Willie sang.
After the warm-up rehearsal where Willie Nelson was accompanied by the LA Philharmonic, Cindy of Plant a Tree USA was invited into Willie's private trailer.
There, Willie was intent to listen and to give.
Willie sang his new not-yet-released song Laws of Nature, which he has given to OCHO RICOS to end poverty in the world through music and dance.
He moved his hands in a sideways figure eight shape, and the soul of the music was directed out to the world.
Willie sang of the sun and the water and the trees ... of nature and us as one ... it was beautiful.
Just imagine it … the all-American greatest country singer Willie Nelson serenading Plant a Tree USA to success.
We are planting 18 billion trees and educating millions with a passion (http://www.plantatreeusa.com/).
And as Willie says "We need it!"
More to come about Willie's involvement with Plant a Tree USA!
Inside Willie Nelson's trailer at the Hollywood Bowl, Cindy explained to Willie that Plant a Tree USA is actively looking for farmers across the USA who are interested in having trees planted on their lands.
Cindy asked Willie if he knew farmers who would want Plant a Tree USA to pay them to plant trees on their property.
Willie grinned and said he knew MANY.
Willie then asked Mark Victor Hansen to give Cindy the name of the head woman at Farm Aid to contact.
We are on our way to assist farmers and make the planet green and healthy simultaneously.
Please support Farm Aid (http://www.farmaid.com/). Willie is the President.
