Marleen Lammers is a writer and accidental entrepreneur. She started her career as a journalist in the Netherlands, but was drawn by African adventures and spent the past decade living in Southern Africa. She’s the co-founder of Penda and Roots Interns, writes on a freelance basis, and is part of Greenpop, a nonprofit organisation that runs reforestation and urban greening programs. Her work with Greenpop - and her two tree-loving boys - inspired ‘The Boy and the Tree.’
