Wacy 2000

Categories: Gardens / Agriculture

Wacy 2000 stands for 'World Association for Celebrating Year 2000'.   It was founded by John Goodman, a children’s entertainer based in Golders Green.  The Montreal Gazette of 19 March 1970 interviewed this unusual man.  He intended that cities all over the world would plant trees for the millennial celebrations.  Britain's president was Ken Dodd.

The picture shows Goodman planting a tree in 1968 somewhere in the Netherlands.
