Like us and leave a comment on Facebook to win a signed copy of Carolyn Finney’s new book “Black Faces, White Spaces”! (Sells unsigned for $24.95).

Each week during August we will be giving away an autographed book to one lucky follower. All you have to do is Like Us (if you don’t already) and comment on any (or all) of our Great Things Grow on Trees photos.

Since the beginning of July, we have been featuring a benefit of growing and protecting our urban forests. You can find them on our timeline or view all the great benefits our urban trees bring us here:

Black Faces, White Spaces by Carolyn Finney

“A wonderfully written and deeply insightful book that convincingly explodes the one-size-fits-all narrative of how nature in the United States is both often imagined to be racialized and is, in fact racialized.

Given the white privileging of geography, the sorts of intellectual-cultural insights offered here could be very well be transformative. This book will stand alone in the field of geographic treatments of race and nature.”

Nik Heynen, University of Georgia

How to Enter

First, if you haven’t already, like our page.

Comment on any post or image from the series Great Things Grow on Trees. You can find them all in a photo album titled “Great Things Grow on Trees”. The comment should relate to the post.

For example, using #3 from the series, “Trees help us feel stronger and live longer” you could comment “my daily walk is through a park with many trees”.

Each comment is an entry. You can comment on as many of the Great Things Grow on Trees posts as you wish. As our urban forests provide many benefits, there are a lot of posts to choose from and many chances to enter. However, you can only comment once per post for that week.

The week starts at 12.01 am (PST) on Monday morning and ends at 12 midnight (PST) Sunday. You can re-enter each week during the promotion. The promotion begins Monday, July 28.

All entries for the week will be placed into a barrel and the winner will be drawn at random. The weekly winner will be announced on our Facebook page and notified at midday on the following dates, Monday August 4, 11, 18, 25 and September 1.

Books will only be posted to addresses within the USA.

This promotion does not have a connection with Facebook in any way and is not sponsored, supported or organized by Facebook. The recipient of the information provided by you is not Facebook, but the California Urban Forest Council and Invest from the Ground Up.
