Plant a tree
How does one become a tree sponsor?
Churches from all over the world and from every confession are invited to become a tree sponsor in a symbolical act of tree planting in Wittenberg. Each church also agrees to plant another tree in a place prominent for itself, with an inscription noting the connection to the Luthergarten in Wittenberg.
In order to insure a successful planting and, thereby, a successful tree sponsorship, the trees must be of a substantial size. Therefore a local landscaping company is planting the trees that later will be adopted. Each tree sponsor will get a certificate provided by the LWF Center in Wittenberg.
The cost for buying a tree, for caring for it for two years until it takes roots and for providing a tree plaque is 500 euros.
Those interested in participating in the Luthergarten will sign an agreement.
The agreement will ask for information about the tree sponsor in order to provide publicity on the Web site, such as:
- name and address of sponsor leader of the church or institution number of members Bible quotation number of additionally financed trees
If churches or institutions have an interest in participating, they can use this link to connect with the LWF Center in Wittenberg.
All tree plantings will be recorded on our website at the "list of all trees".
