OUR CITY FOREST
March 18, 2012

I JUST LOVE OUR CITY FOREST! This organization has a clear mission, enthusiasm and a game plan. Simply put, they get things done. If you are looking for an organization that is not afraid to get its hands dirty and is not afraid of a little work then look no further. OCF has an astounding ability to put Its sometimes limited resources to work in an efficient manner that has the greatest impact on the community. I have been involved with them in their many facets from plantings at schools, community parks, roadways and neighborhoods to education booths and outreach events. 2 thumbs up for Rhonda, OCF staff and Americorps!

My volunteer experience with OCF has definitely had and still has a profound effect on me each and every time I go out. The people I meet, including staff, volunteers and tree recipients, have been an absolute delight. I have trudged through a many neighborhoods and have knocked on a many of door that I would not have had the opportunity to do so unless for this fantastic organization.

This is a GREAT organization. I have been a volunteer for over 10 years. OCF's dedication to the community shines through their every effort. I am proud to be a part of their noble cause to foster a healthy urban ecosystem. Their achievement of 50,000 trees planted in San Jose has done wonders to reduce the effects of warming and has helped clean our air; not to mention beautify our neighborhoods. If you are looking for an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than yourself, give Our City Forest a serious look.
