Common Vision: One Fruit Tree at a Time

Back for its eleventh year, Common Vision IMG_1373arrived at Vista del Valle Elementary School last Thursday in one of its vegetable oil-powered buses. Each year when they come, they help students plant more trees in the orchards (there are several areas with fruit trees), prune and fertilize the existing trees, and talk with the kids in small groups about botany and the environment and the deliciousness of the fruit.

The best thing of all, in my opinion, is that the kids get to get their hands dirty and really dig into the soil, touch worms, and take ownership of these trees. Watch the video on their website, and you will see Vista featured as one of the schools, although the footage is about six years old by now.
