Can one woman save the world?

The article in today's Indie is actually entitled Can One Woman save Africa? but the principle extends to the world. It's an amazing inspirational story so read it then do something, however small.
It reminded me of cramming for my O level Geography exam, for which we needed to know the growing conditions of various crops - honestly. I can't remember which crop needs 70 days at 70 degrees under the shade of banana trees but something does. The point being, that trees aren't just trees, they're also sun-shades, carbon sinks, homes for birds and insects, fuel for fires, compost for the ground and so ad infinitum.
If there's room in your garden, plant a tree. If not, plant one in a woodland somewhere through the Woodland Trust or one of the countless other schemes around.
