Phamie returns to her Borders roots
Phamie Gow, one of Scotland’s most gifted and versatile composer-performers who has played in New York’s Carnegie Hall, last Thursday joined the staff at Borders Forest Trust to plant the first of 200 trees at Gameshope.
Born in the Borders, it was natural for Phamie to choose to plant trees with the trust after her recent Facebook campaign, The Peace Farmer, to help fight climate change raised nearly £600.
She spent a sunny day planting aspen, alder and birch in Gameshope Valley.
Trust chairman Rosalind Grant-Robertson said: “We are delighted that Phamie has contributed to our vision of ‘Reviving the Wild Heart of Southern Scotland’ and will be able to enjoy watching the change to the valley on future visits to the ‘Wild Heart’.”
