I feel compelled to write a few words about a man who was very special to me and who recently passed on to a better world. I have to respect his family’s wishes to not have a funeral or memorial, but as my way of saying goodbye, I need to memorialize him.
I first met Ken Tidwell in 1998 when I came to work for Extension in Montgomery County. Ken had recently completed the Master Gardener class (1997) and then received his certification from me in 1998. I think we were kindred spirits from the beginning, both having a love of nature and trees. Trees especially!
In 1999, he gave me a book entitled, The Man Who Planted Trees, by Jean Giono. In this book the author proceeds on a walk across a desolate valley in the foothills of the Alps near Provence in 1914. He describes the area as dry and barren, unfit for man or beast. In his journey he meets a solitary shepherd, Elzeard Bouffier, who plants acorns in the desert.
