Walker School Gets A School Orchard

 

On April 25 Richard Hodges, the founder of and energy behind ReTreeUS, joined the students, staff, and volunteers of Walker School to plant eleven fruit trees, including peach and a wide variety of apple trees.  Richard met with the Walker School Student Leadership Team and explained to them how he got started on this project and why he is doing it.  Thank you, Richard!  Thanks also to Jon Thurston and Jill Raush for helping us plant the trees, and of course our ongoing thanks to Carolyn Wason, our FoodCorps service member who arranged for Walker School to receive the trees.  Without Carolyn this would not have happened.
