The team then wandered through the facilities following the presentations to check out the site in more detail.

Since its beginning, the Tree-Planting Weekends have put over 100,000 trees into the ground and been an enormous and successful effort in nurturing existing environments, encouraging species diversity, as well as weed management and eradication. Trees planted over twenty-one years ago tower overhead casting shade—the wildlife has burgeoned and plants blossomed so that there are new seedlings sprouting of their own accord under the canopy. The results of all this work have been rewarding and have organically evolved into what is now known as The Planting.

Thank you to all involved in the day and we all look forward to seeing you soon!
