"The bronze plaque placed in front of the George Harrison Tree features a lotus flower and reads: "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener," followed by a quote from George Harrison: 'For the forest to be green, each tree must be green.' George Harrison (1943-2001)"
It was actually George quoting the Maharishi, but I bet George said it cuter.
I remember that dylan special when it first aired. What's fun is watching Olivia dancing in the front row while George is playing. Now, realizing how little live music onstage he played, I see this is a rare treat for her
