The Park of the Moravian Brethren was founded in 1996. It is situated opposite to the Museum of Moravian Brethren where the house of David Nitschmann (the first bishop of Unity of the Brethren) stood. In that park we plant trees from places where people from Suchdol worked. That’s why we need to get approximately 130 trees.
We are interested in places of missionary work of the first generation born still in Kravaře region in Moravia. It could be a place where the church still exists or ceased to exist or acted only evangelistically.
Every tree will be provided with a stone board with the name and the year of retrieving. In that way a unique collection having no parallel was created. The Park has got already about 30 trees.
If you want to help us, this is the easiest way :
In the surroundings of the place where Moravian Brethren worked, somewhere in a bush you will find and dig 3 small plants 10–15 cm tall with roots, wrap them to a wet rag, put them into a plastic bag and a cardboard box and send it as a mail to the address written below. Three plants are suggested because it happens sometimes that some of them dies. It doesn’t matter which kind of tree it is. Best of all would be a tree typical for a type of countryside which tolerates well temperatures between minus 20 to plus 30 Centigrades. Autumn and spring is the best time, but it could be done also in summer.
If it doesn’t bother you, add please also a photo of the donor and something about the history of the church or missionary place, for the purpose of registering the trees.
