Tree Planting – Workday

The Tree planting workday on 2/22/14 went very well. We had a bunch of help and things went pretty smoothly. All the new trees are planted, we were also able to remove some of the older big trees that were starting to become an issue. Work was done for all the new irrigation, the Bessemer engine had some work done, and the roof of the Ice Cream house got some work and a new coat of paint.

Thanks to everyone that came out and pitched a hand.

Below is a link to the workday gallery and a couple of videos. If you have any photos or video you’d like to add, please send them to tedtea.web@gmail.com

We are still taking donations to cover the cost of the trees. To make a donation please fill out and mail the Tree Donation Form (PDF readerneeded) or for more information on this or other projects, please contact us at:
