Community Tree Planting: Ciudadela Caran

Our friend Yocasta reached out to me again about planting more trees with community residents, this time with the Caran neighborhood, which is located in Leonidas Plaza. At first only a few residents came out to help us for tree planting, but little by little more and more showed up. Some helped dig holes and plant trees, others offered advice. A few took trees to plant at their homes. Volunteers helped distribute and plant trees both along a water drainage ditch and at residents’ homes. By the end of the afternoon a large group of children and adults were participating in the work and having a good time.
