This year, Braydon Wolfshaman, will be looking to overwinter in Scotland, and plant trees on the western coast, in Argyll and Dunoon.
After a successful half season by Wolfshaman last year in Northumberland, and planting in the Kielder forest, the largest manmade forest in the UK, he is looking to return, for six full months to Rewild the Scottish west, near to the highlands. He will likely be planting predomiantely Scott’s pine, and White and Black Spruce, and other native tree species of Scotland. The land of Argyll, and Dunoon is near to the highlands, and across the waters from the isle of Mull.
This fund is founded on a community effort of close kin and friends for mutual support to make this effectual for this year. Five hundred dollars will make this mission happen and will not be for anything related to me. This would cover accommodations for the first two weeks in the Scottish village, planting gear; the planting bags, forester caulk boots, and rain gear for the gales, and basic wares for working in the woods.
Supporting this would mean you are supporting a much greater ethic. The work will take place from November until April, and other money collected from the project will be donated to various organizations such as Survival, A.T.W.A. groups, Wolf and Wildlife sanctuaries, or put towards the preservation of Indigenous global heritage. For those making offerings in specific amounts, Wolfshaman will be writing special honorable mentions on his aferalspirit.wordpress.com site, with photos of the planted land, and the amount of trees dedicated in your name. A special gesture or rite in your honor and personal commemorations and photos sent to you in return. Knowing that your monetary donations are supporting the rewilding of a historic landscape, and giving habitat back to the native fauna of Scotland; Red Deer, Red squirrel (who are starting to come back from the disease brought by the Grey squirrel), lynx, beaver and elk and creating shade for fungal growth and ground flora.
Last year, over 20,000 trees were planted by Wolfshaman in a short one and a half month season. During a six month gig in Argyll, the aim is a fifth to a quarter million trees to be planted judging by past years in Ontario. I, Braydon am eternally grateful for any and all of your efforts in assisting with this misson.
Donations of $25 will earn you a personal mail of honorary gratitude, a selection of photos from the planted land, notes/status of the work, and the pride of knowing that thousands of new trees were planted with your support
Donations of $50 will earn you a personal mail of honorary gratitude, a selection of photos from the land, notes/status of the work, and a dedication with the number of trees planted in one day in your name on the aferalspirit.wordpress.com site
Donations of $100 will earn you a personal mail of honorary gratitude, a selection of photos from the land, notes/status of the work, and a dedication with the number of trees planted in one day in your name on the aferalspirit.wordpress.com site, and a special gesture or rite made in your honor at the land.
Anything above this will be received with the same, and one of the seedlings (roughly 1 foot in length) mailed to you.
All offers are taken in high rehards, and are made knowing that all money is in support of rewilding and protecting a historic land, a way of life, and other environmental groups, directly and indirectly. Other ways you can support are of course sharing it around with those of like mind, who may be inclined to.
