    Fruit Tree Planting and Collective Prayer for Peace
    Pre-Rally Event at the Lake Merritt Garden, 666 Bellevue Ave, Oakland

    Gather before the climate rally at Lake Merritt to plant and dedicate fruit trees for peace and join in a powerful global peace meditation for inner and outer resilience. The tree planting is part of Growing Together’s effort to plant 100 trees for peace in the Oakland area (growingtogetherproject.org); and the meditation is part of a globalized synchronized meditation, with hundreds of communities meditating at noon as part of the Unify Peace Campaign (unify.org). No tree planting or meditation experience necessary! Bring a Meditation cushion if you wish! Light refreshments provided.
