Happy Earth Day to all! At Western Landscape Services we believe Earth is every day, after all we only have one planet so why should we recognize the basis of our existence on just one day? Regardless, to celebrate, we are hitting up our second school of the year for our Plant a Tree Make Our City Cool Program! The lucky grade 6 class will get outside and help plant a large native tree species on the school property and learn about the importance of trees in our urban environment.
This leads me to bring up something important, there is so much talk about what we need to do to change the fate of our planet (global warming etc.) and I think all these things are great and will make a difference but the fate of whether these plans become a reality is held in the hands of future generations. This is why it is so important to educate children at a young, impressionable age so they can carry on the change and see the change in the years to come. The reality is the policy makers may not see the changes in their time. Global change takes time and it’s up to us to be the change we want to see and pass this knowledge onto our children.
Happy Earth Day!
