My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.

Planting trees is complex work. Not only from a technical point of view – skills and resources are needed to create suitable places for small trees to germinate and grow – but also, and above all, from a strategic point of view. Planting trees is not enough, they must be supported in their growth. This means thinking in the medium and long term, and for this you need to find the right tree for the right place and the right purpose. The projects we carry out for the planting of our trees respond exactly to these needs. Environmental benefits An initial key aspect that we take into account when we develop our projects is the potential to bring about environmental benefits, at both a local and global level. Local environmental benefits: Our work, which integrates tree cultivation into agricultural settings, aims to deliver the maximum benefits to the ecosystem in which it is carried out. Each project has its own distinct characteristics and therefore different areas in which tree planting can have positive effects, but the most common of these are: combating soil erosion, enriching biodiversity, protecting soil fertility, creating sustainable ecosystems, etc. Global environmental benefits: During its lifetime, every tree absorbs CO2 (carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere and stores it in its woody parts. This process removes CO2 from the atmosphere and its effects are greater the longer the trees are allowed to grow and live." Social and economic benefits It is equally important that our work is able to deliver social benefits to the local communities that participate in our projects and bring them to life. Funding, community building, training and technical assistance are the fundamental steps in starting each new project. Above all, it is crucial that communities derive direct benefits from trees in terms of food resources and economic opportunities. They are the keepers of the trees, they will enjoy their fruits. How it works Telling the story of what goes on in our projects, the local farming communities, the trees and all the commitment behind it is an integral part of our work. We do this through the web pages that every tree we plant has on our platform. And we do this through images, words and videos. Like these we've collected here for you, so you can see... how it works! We believe that throwing 100 seeds in a field does not mean planting 100 trees. And we believe that intensively planting a single species is not a sustainable and biodiversity-friendly choice. We believe that communities of people living in a given place are the best custodians of trees, so we support them financially and help them to plant and grow trees on their land. The trees will benefit them, the place where they live and the whole planet. We believe in the bond that, through trees and thanks to Treedom, can be created between distant people. We believe that each and every one of us must make an effort to reduce our CO2 emissions, and in doing so we can also help to absorb them by planting trees. We believe that we can make this planet greener. And we want to do it in the right way.
A friend and I started this little side project to help people plant trees while in lockdown. It was called Plantyflix back then. The whole point was to help keep people thinking about the environment and give people a way to take action on this bigger crisis we still face stuck at home on the couch. Little did we think that we'd even plant a hundred trees, let alone thousands! But here we are. Super happy with how it went. However, the question is now — how can we plant even more trees? And how can we do it in such a way that encourages even more people to plant for every tree planted? Enter the Treeferral referral program. The aim is in the name. The whole point of Treeferral is one awesome little tree planting referral program for trees. As you may have read above already, you plant trees, you refer a friend, and you earn 40% of every payment they make for planting trees for as long as they're signed up. Plus, we'll plant 10x trees for your mate to get them started. It's quite literally a triple win. Win for you, win for your friend, and of course a win for nature and the planet, woo! We’ve partnered with Eden Reforestation Project to help us with the tree planting part. These guys have planted over 450+ million trees and counting in countries such as Madagascar, Indonesia, Mozambique, Nepal, Haiti, Kenya and Central America. Not only does every trees planted help restore the native ecology, environment and improve the land. But also provides financial support to people and communities living in extreme poverty. So come and join us! Let's plant forests and more forests together and reach the goal of planting 1 million trees. Let's go!
Moglie, madre, nonna, Paola Thaon di Revel ama i fiori e la natura. L'eredità è il suo background. È cresciuta in una famiglia dove la disciplina militare era un dato di fatto, così come la voglia di divertirsi. Sei sorelle e un fratello, in una grande villa chiamata “Cimena”, dove molti sono venuti in visita: da Umberto I, agli americani colti, ai vicini Bruni Tedeschi sulla stessa collina. Una vita dedicata al marito, Franco Reviglio e ai tre figli con tanti spostamenti e viaggi, in tutto il mondo. Oggi, i sette nipoti e la casa di campagna, regalano giornate intensamente soddisfacenti. Wife, mother, grandmother, Paola Thaon di Revel loves flowers and nature. Heritage is her background. She grew up in a family where military discipline was a given, as well as the desire to have fun. Six sisters and one brother, in a large villa called “Cimena”, and everyone came to visit: from Umberto I, to educated Americans, to the Bruni Tedeschi neighbours on the same hill. A life dedicated to her husband, Franco Reviglio and the three children with many moves and travels, all over the world. Today, the seven grandchildren and country house, make for intensely satisfying days.
"Trees are the hair of Mother Earth. They protect it, keep it fresh, their roots keep the soil compact, they are a refuge for birds and animals, they are food for us and for animals. Trees are the oxygen of the Earth. The roots of the trees go straight into Mother Earth, they represent our roots, we as them anchored to the Earth, our feet on the Earth the head in the sky, like their branches. Since I was a little girl, I hugged trees, I was ashamed... waiting for no-one to be there. Today is different. We are aware of what we have done to the Earth. Hugging a tree is an exchange of energy, it is a thank you, it is a protection: them for us and we for them. We hug the trees to prevent them from being cut down. We hug the trees to find that balance with nature that we have lost too many times." Carolina Reviglio "Gli alberi sono i capelli della Madre Terra. La proteggono, la mantengono fresca, le loro radici tengono il terreno compatto, sono rifugio per uccelli e animali, sono cibo per noi e per gli animali. Gli alberi sono l'ossigeno della Terra. Le radici degli alberi vanno dritto dentro la Madre Terra, rappresentano le nostre radici, noi come loro ancorati alla Terra, i nostri piedi sulla Terra il capo nel cielo, come le loro fronde. Fin da ragazzina abbracciavo alberi, mi vergognavo aspettando che non ci fosse nessuno. Oggi è diverso, oggi abbiamo la consapevolezza di quello che abbiamo fatto alla Terra. Abbracciare un albero è uno scambio di energia, è un ringraziamento, è una protezione: loro per noi e noi per loro. Abbracciamo gli alberi per impedire che vengano tagliati. Abbracciamo gli alberi per ritrovare quell'equilibrio con la natura che troppe volte abbiamo perso." Carolina Reviglio
