On Mulberries and Healing

A local counseling service told us that they would like to donate a tree to the school garden, dedicated to the healing of the children of Julian with whom they work intimately. The garden club decided on a “weeping edible mulberry.”  The tree does not get very large, but the foliage grows thick—just large enough for a child to pass through and wrap his/her arms around the trunk.  Hence, it has been nicknamed the “hugging tree,” standing as a hopeful symbol in the heart of the garden.
