Plant a Book
is a simple initiative: An author-led movement, where authors themselves plant trees. By pledging to contribute a percentage of their book revenues, authors super-charge the sustainability cycle. Trees get planted, books get imagined. Trees get harvested, books get made, and sold. Authors plant more trees. The intention is to unite the story-makers of our time to sustain literature while bettering the planet in a practical way.
I started Plant a Book at the same time as launching my debut novel Canopy Harvest
. I wanted to celebrate the achievement as well as start a sustainable project to work with the publishing I intend to do.
I have personally planted over 200 trees to date, mostly in a food forest in Wales, and continue to invest in this type of permaculture.
