UPDATE: One nature, One Community 2, “Let a thousand seedlings bloom”, August 26, 2012. We are trying to scout areas that are “safe” for travel and planting for those who would like to participate. We will consider everything especially that the rains are continuous. We have some areas in mind but is too far from the center and we know many will not come. But we will see. Anyway, I think our adopted forest (longlong) is still a good venue for the tree planting because aside from the trees to be planted, we will also have a tree weeding and tree parenting activity. Those who went to the first One Nature ,One Community activity saw how tall the grasses were.
Here are some photos of the tree planting activity. More photos were uploaded at the watwatworld community FB group.
We made out a call for support and I am happy to say that many of those who donated are people I knew during my college days. They have witnessed and participated in some of our school based projects and activities since the 90’s. Along with the Cordillera Bloggers Society, Kappa Epsilon KSA, Ayuyang group and close friends, thank you for believing in us!
