Annual After Thanksgiving Planting Party

john group shot nov 2017 workparty (2)The rain held off! The youngest was three,  we planted 101 natives near the entrance way and in the park’s meadow.  27 volunteers chose to spend their Saturday morning planting Douglas Fir, Cedar, Hemlock, Elderberry, Indian Plum and many ground covers. It was rewarding to look back when leaving and know we planted something small today that may grow to 150 feet long after we leave!  We are huddling  around the green flags where we planted a small 6 inch cedar we named Chief Seattle. Volunteers are holding Chief Seattle quotes they read to settle the tree securely. “Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself….Humans merely share the earth. We can only protect the land, not own it.”
