Devastating fires swept through our area a year ago.
It destroyed many farmlands, forests and homesteads.
Sadly some lives where lost.
A year on and they are rebuilding, replanting and restoring.
Fire can take so much away, but it can never destroy the human spirit.
Volunteers from all over the world have helped to rebuild Eden.
Today we went to the farm “Heartland” to help plant trees.
There were hundreds of people on the land planting trees and singing.
Nature was rejoicing with them…
In a cathedral of trees,
where charred remains
I consent to repose,
The forest growth
in the dancing light,
forgetting that inferno,
lost her fight.
Whispering sweet nothings
in the sacredness
Praise is lifted high,
the land is set to rest
when joyful Earthlings serve.
