Beautification Team

With all my moaning about the lack of trees in this town I jumped at the chance at putting my environmental dollars where my mouth is. One man has organized a Town Beautification Team. For $5 which goes towards the cost of trees and plants you can join the team and help plant, water etc trees and flowers around the town. With membership came a privilege; a Black Eyed Susan flower. My third daughter and I promptly planted it in the front yard. I'm pumped! Next week we get to plant trees along the river. Won't my mommy be so proud of me?


  1. As salaam alaikum,

    Maashaa Allah, how wonderful!

    You have a river near you, so there are things to do where you live after all.

  2. Wa Alaikum Salaam

    Yes finally! Alhumdullilah.

  3. What a great idea! Love to see people do things like this. You might want to google guerilla gardening. Resistance is fertile! :-)

  4. Resistance is fertile,lol.

  5. I checked out the website. Very interesting. Who would think of planting a flower in a pothole of all things? Its sad when being environmental has become the act of a renegade.
