Robert White [pictured above] stepped up to the plate, and took pictures of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area clean up event activities and volunteers. It was precious to have a visual record of the day, and the people who came out for the clean up. Robert has posted pictures to his own facebook page, and has submitted photos to use for the Richard St Barbe Afforestation Area clean up here, in the slide show as follows:
Thank you very much Robert, for being our official photographer, for taking these images, and sharing them about the clean up. If anyone else has photos or stories they wish to share about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area Clean Up, please email, thank you kindly.
“We advocate that all standing armies everywhere be used for the work of essential reafforestation . .. in the countries to which they belong, and that each country . . . shall provide expeditionary forces to cooperate in the greater tasks of land reclamation in the Sahara and other deserts.”
