Want to quit reading and start planting? From August 10-25, 2019 we will be gathering people from around the world to “Plant Together” in Senegal. It all begins with a four-day orientation camp near Dakar, with international and local African speakers, helping you get your heart clean and your hands dirty. Then teams will head up north for one week of planting trees in Africa’s “Great Green Wall” . You’ll eat native food, work hard and maybe even learn a few words of Wolof or Pular (two of the tribal languages of Senegal) as you share your life and your sweat with other Africans. Are you ready?
