Man of the Trees – Richard St. Barbe Baker “Just think if we had listened to St. Barbe. If billions of trees, many of which would now be a half-a-century-old, had been planted in areas that are now deserts…
Thankfully, the Man of the Trees wasn’t the last of his kind. We still have many other great, environmental leaders who can help guide us towards the utopia St. Barbe envisioned.”

Why I am a vegetarian by Richars St. Barbe Baker ” Up in the north-west of Canada, where I enjoyed 3 1/2 years in the wide open spaces, I was told that an ounce of dates was equivalent in food value to a pound of beef so, when I was alone, home-made wholemeal bread and dates became my staple diet. I bought dates by the crate at about 2 cents a pound.”~Richard St. Barbe Baker
