Optimistic Trees were invited to help plant a few trees with Leslie, a Trees Forever coordinator, and Dr. David Courard-Hauri, a professor from Drake University, at the Drake Park. A public orchard is not only pleasing to the eye, but serves as a food resource for the community. Dr. Courard-Hauri has been taking care of it and enjoying the community come together around the harvesting season. Leslie taught us how to properly plant a tree with a simple tip shown in the video. At the end, Nikola definitely didn’t miss his chance to try the products of labour. Cherries were delicious!
