my apricot tree Emmanuel, Naturopath - Perpignan (France)

The one thing you don’t want to live without is..?
My apricot tree

Since when do you have your “one thing” and where did you get it from?
Since I was eight years old I’m sowing seeds in the garden. This apricot tree is round about sixty years old. So it’s 10 years older than me. I care for it since i live in the commune.

What does it mean to you?
Trees are for me a kind of bridge between humans and nature. They help me and a lot of other people to feel connected to the nature. We plant trees and use them. The apricots are delicious and help me to be in a good condition. With wood we build houses, we eat the fruits. A lot of animals use trees and the fruits too. So yeah, this apricot tree is a symbol for nature and health for me.

How often do you use it?
I care for trees every day. I’m around them, watering them and do all the necessary things in gardening. Gardening is a big part of my life.

What is your name? Where do you live? What is your profession?
My name is Emmanuel. I live in Montescot – it’s a commune close to Perpignan. I work as a Naturopath.
