Well, folks, we took a huge step forward in our efforts to offset our school carbon emissions! On February 25th, a rather large group of volunteers headed out to Fort Ord to plant the trees that we have been growing since the fall of 2010. In just four hours, we planted 29 Valley Oak Trees. It’s been a real treat to see these trees grow from acorns into little saplings planted in the ground. Our babies are all grown up! I wish them lots of luck making it in the big world! May they grow to be big, strong, and sequester lots of carbon.
Thank you to everybody who spent their Saturday morning planting trees with us and, of course, Christina and Rose from The Return of the Natives organization.
