Today was the first give away of the fall and much like the first give away of spring 2010 it was cold, wet and rainy. But no amount of rain is going to stop the determined staff of the Worcester Tree Initiative. We planted four trees (two kousa dogwoods and two kwanza cherry) at Duffy Field. Despite the weather we still had people come looking for trees. We had trees avaliable for people who had been trained on Saturday at the yard sale, but we also lead training seasons today. Despite the weather we had an okay turn out.
Sunday September 19th Worcester Tree Initiative will be tabeling at Start on the Street. Also on Sunday is Train the Trainers where our new volunteers learn about our program and how to properly plant a tree to begin instilling knowlegde upon new tree stewards.
