This past week, Oakland Tech Earth Team headed to Wanlass Park to support the multi-year tree planting project that Richmond High Earth Team has been working so hard on.

Students worked with Ben, Urban Forestry Manager, and learned about the history of the project and the goals for the near future. Youth supported the project by assisting with some maintenance of trees that have already been planted. This included pulling weeds and invasives near the base of the tree and mulching the area to assist with water retention and weed suppression.

A couple of our repeaters were very happy to be out at Wanlass. Jade and Asha had planted a few trees last year and were excited to see that the trees were doing well.
