Event description
Come to celebrate and support Diana Beresford-Kroeger. Hear about her life's journey from ancient wisdom to a healing vision of the forest.

About this Event

Canadian botanist, biochemist and visionary Diana Beresford-Kroeger's startling insights into the hidden life of trees have already sparked a quiet revolution in how we understand our relationship to forests. Now, in a captivating account of how her life led her to these illuminating and crucial ideas, she shows us how forests can not only heal us but save the planet.

Please join us on October 19th to hear this remarkable author share her story and insights into why trees matter. Diana’s wisdom for why trees are a viable, achievable solution to climate change is inspiring and hopeful in these critical and heart-wrenching times of droughts, floods and fires. She’ll share the intricate ways in which the health and welfare of every living creature is connected to the global forest.

Diana’s talk will be followed by a book signing.

Books including Diana’s new memoir, To Speak for the Trees: My Life’s Journey from Ancient Celtic Wisdom to a Healing Vision of the Forest will be available for sale at the venue by Another Story.
