Letter from the Director

STOP - LOOK - THINK - DREAM - LEARN - EXPERIENCE

Dear Friends,

Each new year, each new season reminds us that nature is offering us lessons - are we listening? We have the opportunity to transform a community through our efforts as stewards of the environment. By showing respect for the land, we show respect for each other. By respecting and cherishing our neighbors, we nurture our humanity. This is perhaps our most compelling call to action. And all that's required is to listen and to witness what's around us, and then, to respond.

The environmentalists and educators at Reeves-Reed Arboretum create a setting for such transformative dreams to happen, whether it's large scale or small, acres or a square foot garden. And it's this time of the year that we do the work whose end result is a harvest of glorious activities, fantastic floral displays, and community building.

To momentarily reflect on our celebration of Martin Luther King: while standing at the Lincoln Memorial, Rev. King didn't say "I have a plan." He said, "I have a dream." Come, dream with us!

Cheers,
