OUR CITY FOREST
March 16, 2011
I love trees. I originally volunteered with OCF in January of 2004, assisting with a tree-planting activity in a local park. I enjoyed the experience (exercise, camaraderie and sense of accomplishment) so much that I enrolled in OCF's formal training class for "Tree Amigos". Since that time I have volunteered regularly with them, planting young trees all over the city of San Jose. OCF is a great organization which is now responsible for the majority of new trees planted in this city. They provide an opportunity for young and old to work together to beautify and improve the quality of life in all of our communities.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My sense of accomplishment an pride in the improvement in our community by the addition of trees.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make it an integral part of the city of San Jose.
Volunteer & I planted trees, assisted with construction of a shade house and a new tree nursery. I am a permanent volunteer with this organization.
