In an age where everything is fast, where we get by with motorized vehicules that are faster than the wind, and get our food through apps, communicate in instants throughout the world, many people have forgotten how slow and patient life is.

Some trees take a lot of time to grow, avocado trees don't give fruit sometimes until the fifth year, the story of planting trees is the story of reconnecting to the inner cycles, that are inherently connected to the cycles of the universe, the sun the moon and the stars, they are slow compared to the rythms of modern life, but they still are.

In the age of anxiety, planting a tree can root you into those cycles, and outroot you of unhealthy cycles.

"Slow is smooth, smooth is fast"
