People planting a tree

Delano’s People – Planting Education

Date grant awarded: October 23, 2019

Planting Education will focus on expanding an awareness and education of environmental justice and climate change within our country, region, and local communities. This project is important, because there is often a disconnect in social justice work when looking at those with a post-secondary education and those with less education. It is my intention to have Planting Education serve as a bridge. There are two educational components: trainings and planting trees.

The trainings will be where folks can come learn about what environmental changes are disproportionately impacting our community, while planting trees will focus on attracting young people with a hands-on experience.
