Our new wedding tradition, planting a new coconut palm in honor of the bride and groom, has become quite a popular activity.
John & Joan Stainsby (pictured below with their new coconut palm) have been visiting Nisbet for 15 years and a were wed here 5 years ago. During their recent vacation they planted a new palm tree to commemorate their vows and enhance the environment.
Here is a poem that Joan wrote and read at their palm planting ceremony.
It is somewhere for birds to sit and sing
May this tree grow tall and strong
To be here long after we are all gone
When people pass I hope they smile
and enjoy from John and Joan.
