Linden trees have always held a special place in human culture with their beauty, symbolism and numerous uses. They feature in the mythology of folk as well as religious tradition, in literature and music. Examining present applications, Peter Cornelis Müller has reached out to people all over the world who still work with the linden: beekeepers, tea growers, manufacturers of paper, yarn and rope, but also contemporary musicians and poets. The growing network ‘Linda’ represents a holistic view on the subject and proposes new perspectives and uses for the linden in today’s world.
