TheManWhoPlantSeeds / Alpenstock


'The man who plant seeds' is a story about an old shepherd named Elezeard Bouffier. He carried an iron rod. He thrust his iron rod into the earth, dig a hole. Then he bent his back and planted an acorn. Then he filled the hole. With his great expectation, ruined ecosystem of the isolated and largely abandoned valley were restored to oak trees.

But What if later he suffered with spinal disc herniation?
And what if he had this seeds injecting alpenstock?
This alpenstock helps mountaineers to support their bodies and it also spreads seed to make mountian green.
