August is Poetry Month – in Australia, if not in further reaches. Red Room Poetry, an organisation for students (and teachers), is creating a poem forest:
POEM FOREST is a free nature writing prize that literally breathes life back into the natural world that sustains us.
Created by Red Room Poetry, in partnership with The Australian Botanic Garden, POEM FOREST deepens our connection with nature by inviting students and communities to use their words to make positive climate action through poetry. For every nature poem received a tree is planted to help heal habitats and create a POEM FOREST for future generations.
