I have always believed this and so have made a life's project of planting shade trees where ever I lived. I now have a forest of shade trees in my back yard. My challenge now is to find that perfect spot of sun where I can plant a tomato and some herbs.

A beautiful sentiment. My version is to leave improved soil in rental houses.
