I came across a beautiful project  called Tree Project by Hiroshi Sunairi. He is sending out second and third generation seeds of trees that survived the bombing of Hiroshima to people who interested in growing and preserving them. These seeds are called hibaku, meaning they survived the atomic bombing. He is chronicling where the seeds go, how they’re progressing and who is tending to them on both a blog and a film project. I looked through his site for quite a while and love all of the pictures of the seedlings looking out over city scapes waiting to go into the ground safely and to be big enough to not be under foot.  Check out Hiroshi’s blog here to find out more about the project and to look at some of the footage from the film. Beautiful.
