Dave Deppner, Friend of the Earth

Watch the video to learn about Trees for the Future

Dave Deppner, Founder of Trees for the Future, passed away yesterday.

This remarkable man, along with his wife, Grace, and the organization he founded, made a great impact on the Earth, by helping people re-plant deforested regions all around the world. He did this work quietly and humbly.

I was fortunate to meet Dave, Grace and some staff members of Trees for the Future at the 2007 Green Festival in San Francisco. At the time, I was searching for ways to help reverse the damage that humans have inflicted on our Earth. I discovered that Trees for the Future is doing good work with local communities, world-wide.

My support of this organization began with a 2008 Earth Day Art Show in Oakland, California, which raised money to plant 1,000 trees in Senegal. I have been supporting Trees for the Future ever since.

Reflecting on Dave Deppner's lifetime of work is truly inspiring.
