Strike a #PlantPose Winners!

Thanks to all who played along for our  Strike a #PlantPose Instagram contest. Your entries were amazing, and it warmed our hearts to see so many familiar faces joining us!

It was hard to choose just one winner, but we fell in love with our winner’s dancing poses in Joshua Tree. (Hit play to see our very favorite pose half-way through.) Be sure to check out our honorable mentions as well. (See their comments below each photo.)

The contest may be over, but you can continue striking a #PlantPose. Tag us for a chance to be featured on our page. (Don’t worry if you did not win this time, we will hold a contest again!)

“In this moment of my life right now, two things have captivated my whole being: Knitting & Manzanitas. I’m either casting-on another project or researching of a local manzanita population. Needless to say, they bring me into my happy place”

“?Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve / Kashaya Pomo Ancestral Homelands?
With a lifespan of up to 2,000 years, and heights up to 380ft/115m, the Coast Redwood is Monumental in size and history. I try and imagine the innumerable stories these endangered giants could tell. So much can happen in the average lifespan (500-700yrs) of a Coast Redwood, and so much has. Many millennia of life with the Kashaya Pomo people, who would generally only collect and use Redwoods that had already fallen, to the settlers that logged them to near extinction, to the rapidly progressing challenges of climate change, and the uncertain future of the land’s protected status, I couldn’t help but feel a little sadness in the otherwise sublime reverie that is standing in a Redwood grove.? I thought I would reach out and offer a hug, to comfort the ancient and the weary, but as we stood there I realized, it was really just myself I was comforting. “
