Teens Tend Trees!

On Dec. 3rd, 2011, buildOn teen volunteers performed outstanding tree maintenance work. Meeting at Brook Park for an orientation and tool pick-up, we then dividing into three teams consisting of 5 students and an adult supervisor. Each group attended to a share of the 47 trees in our street tree planting project. We picked up trash, aerated the soil, tightened arbor ties, and planted bulbs at the perimeter of the tree pits. Adult facilitators Kimmy Kunkle, Lille Smallwood, and Carol Zakaluk–thanks for helping! This was just part of the students’ important volunteer work that day.
