The One Who Planted Trees

The One Who Planted Trees

Bandicoot, Koala, and a very fun-loving Frill Necked lizard regale their story, part truth, part myth but mostly inspiration, of a woman who transforms her world to bring about hope and happiness for herself and the world around her.

Do you ever wonder how much just one person out of 7.8 billion can really accomplish?

The One Who Planted Trees is an inspirational story that proves just how much one person can do and will have you humming out of the theatre, pulling out the spade and watering plants into the ground.

In the face of a global climate emergency, how can we find hope? What good can one person do? When those around you do nothing, how do you respond? This is a fun joyous springboard for serious discussion about our world and the environment we all value.

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second-best time is today.” Chinese Proverb
