Friends of the Trees Newsletter

Date: June 13, 2015

You are invited to the 15th annual Fairy & Human Relations Congress:
Communication and Co-Creation with Devas, Nature Spirits and Faerie Realms. 

This event has always had a close connection to Friends of the Trees Society, since both were started by Michael Pilarski. The Congress will honor the  early bird price of $260 (rather than the $295 after June 16).  Just mention in your email that you want the Friends of the Trees price.  There are a couple of half work-trade positions still available.
