4-H member leads tree planting in San Bruno
More than 250 people helped plant trees and other plants in San Bruno on Earth Day to green up a neighborhood charred by a devastating fire a year and a half ago, reported Sergio Quintana on KGO-TV, the ABC affiliate in San Francisco.
The planting event was the brainchild of 13-year-old Julien Levy. Through his efforts, the local 4-H Club, a few Boy Scout troops and resident volunteers turned out to plant the trees.
"It means, kind of, not only a tree and maybe a source of food and fruit, but maybe a token of hope that the renaissance of San Bruno may be beginning," Levy said.
Julien Levy is involved in the 4-H Million Trees Project.
