Thankfull that this need has been covered .
For many years the drive up to the mountains brought us through what was being used as a dump.. It was not a real dump, it was just a spot on the side of the road where people started dumping off their trash .. It was not even in one spot , it spread all along the side of the road. From there, the wind would blow all the bags out into the adjoining fields ... it was a real mess. We tried a few times to clean it up, we brought in big tractors and trucks to haul it away but in a few weeks it was back again.
A couple years ago , one man and his son started to care for this land , they got the garbage removed and then stayed there to chase people away who tried to dump. They then began to plant a tree hedge , and flowers , even a strawberry patch .. They put a little picnic shelter beside the water , and a yurt for people to get out of the heat. They are doing an amazing job at reclaiming this land.
He had a request .. There is a section on the land that he would like to plant 30 apple trees and 10 pear trees. The total cost of this will be $150. He has used all his recourses and was wondering if we could help. As a side note , $150 is what we spent each time we cleaned the dump up... Any ways , we would love to be able to help with this request if some one would like to sponsor trees .
Here is a short video of the days coal deliveries . What a blessing that we were able to do this .
