Updates on Ethiopia Church Forests 2017 [VIDEO]

This film was produced by our awesome partner, Untamed Science, with Haley Nelson Chamberlain as film maker. During May 2017, our expedition had multiple goals –
1. to meet with the Arch Bishop of the Coptic church,
2. to host a workshop for priest leadership about the value of their church forests,
3. to distribute a new children’s book (called Beza) that explains the importance of church forests to children in to rural schools,
4. to meet and assist the women’s monastary to develop a sustainable income, and
5. to celebrate 4 new church forest walls. Whew — a busy trip!!!

This film summarizes our adventures and successes!
