Review for Fairfax Releaf, Fairfax, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In fall of 2009 nearly 500 trees were planted at Fairhill Elementary with a volunteer force of students. In April of 2010, Girl Scouts straightened up stakes and tubes around the existing trees and planted 30 more. In addition, about 100 trees were planted in a neighboring community in green space areas. Fairfax Re-Leaf promptly returned our calls and set us up with training, saplings, and supplies. The representative from Fairfax Re-Leaf met us at our chosen location and assisted in the initial plantings. Afterwards, this representative provided additional saplings and supplies as needed. Fairfax Re-Leaf enabled our Girl Scouts to earn an environmental award empowering them to make a tangible difference in their community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

obtaining training, supplies, and saplings from the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

create community workshops to instruct on planting prior to independent plantings.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the trees growing in the community years later.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional and responsive.

Ways to make it better...

there were some kind of online video teaching us more about the different kinds of trees and things to be wary of when planting to insure the best survival.
