About

Hey everyone!  🙌

I'm Nicholas Penn, full time independent musician, songwriter, producer, yoga-doer, pun maker, and tree planting weirdo :).  This Patreon page is for people who want to help me plant trees and support my life's work.  I write, record, and mix all my own music, as well as work on projects that inspire me (ie, using music to plant trees).

I have a dream of planting 1 whole Forest Garden every month through the generosity of all of you amazing Patrons.  A Forest Garden = 4,000 trees planted, and is the primary solution used by Trees For The Future, as they seek to eradicate hunger in Sub-Saharan Africa.


This page is really about YOU getting to automatically participate in big work that changes lives and cares for the environment.  Big big thank you to everyone for your support, friendship, encouragement, and enthusiasm along the way. 

Cheers to another 40 years of music making and tree planting! 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳

p.s. I literally have a lifetime's worth of work to share with you!  The process of songwriting and making music is my personal path to growth, healing, and peace.  My hope is that it serves you on your personal path. 
How many trees do you think we can plant together?!?!🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳

Bonus - If we get to 4,000 trees per month, I will double the monthly tree count to make it 8,000 trees per month.  That's TWO Forest Gardens planted by YOU every single month.

In one year = 96,000 trees
In 2 years = 192,000 trees
10 years = 960,000 (Almost 1M trees :)

To put in another way, that's two whole families, or maybe even two communities every month who are being given the gift of a lifetime.  Pun intended.  

Humble Beginnings 2018 Tree Count - 1,000 Trees Planted!

This is a partnership with Trees For The Future to donate 1 tree to be planted for every $1 contributed on this Patreon page.  Each level of support on Patreon = more and more trees being planted by you each month.  I also donate 10 trees for every merch item sold on my online store.  
What is Trees For The Future?  You should totally check out their website, but long story short, they are a non-profit that operates in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Their focus is using sustainable agriculture to make a huge impact on hunger, poverty, education, and the environment in communities plagued by drought, desertification, and lack of resources.  Their first step in this process is to plant a whole bunch of trees, which they call the Forest Garden!  The forest garden makes it possible to grow food in these areas, allows people to begin earning a living from the gardens.  With access to food and economic opportunity, children are able to go to school, and families are able to thrive.  Fun Fact - The average program participant sees a 400% increase in income after completing the program.  Who doesn't want a 400% raise?!

Why Trees For The Future?  Besides being amazed by their breadth of impact, I believe that the simplest solutions often have the most profound impact.  In the case of the forest garden, the simple act of planting trees and caring for the environment IS the solution that is saving these peoples lives.  In a society where many of us are dis-identifying with nature and do not prioritize connecting with nature, the forest garden reminds us to return to the earth for our most fundamental needs.  Planting trees is a powerful world changing practice. 
Thanks for joining in the fun :).

Goals
$20.27 of $4,000 per month
When we reach 4,000 Trees planted every month that will equal 1 Forest Garden every single month!  At that point I will DOUBLE the monthly tree count so that we are planting 8,000 trees a month.  That's 2 complete Forest Gardens every month!
