  • Location: ‎⁨Calagnaan Island⁩, Carles (Philipppines)
  • Note: A little poem about a new bamboo forest to cover a beautiful island again with trees. The bamboo creates a livelihood for the people (using it to build their houses and boats) and a future for the children (clean air and erosion control). Every child and parent on the island spent the morning planting bamboo at the very top of their  island.
