San Vicente High School Visit

Padre Jorge Ugalde Paladines Colegio, a school in nearby San Vicente, that participated in Planet Drum revegetation workshops at the greenhouse in the past, recently was in touch with us again.

They expressed interest in receiving more trees for the students and teachers to take home and plant. They are also interested in receiving a portable seedbed to begin producing their own trees in the future.

We delivered a truckload of trees to their school, and I gave a presentation on the work the Planet Drum does and the importance of recovering damaged forest habitat.

All of the approximately 180 students were enthusiastic about receiving trees. In total, 220 native fruit trees were donated. Species included: Chirimoya, Pechiche, Mandarina, Grosella, Guayaba, Guava de Machete, and Aguacate.

We look forward to continuing to collaborate on Dry Tropical Forest revegetation with this school.
