In Kenya, there are trees standing tall, rivers running races, and village gardens growing. Seeing this with eyes eager to explore, little Wangari’s love for the earth grows as deep and as wide as the skies above her. But in a community where women are supposed to stay at home, her love is squeezed into the smaller space of her heart.
What no one knows is that the love that was forced by society to be small is actually a tiny seed that, with the right rain and sunlight, would sprout into millions and millions of trees.
