My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Canopy, Palo Alto,, CA, USA
Have you ever paid attention to how differently you feel when you are standing in a wide open, heat radiating, gray and barren paved area or in a park with grass under your feet and lofty, verdant trees providing cooling shade and whispering leaves? Luckily for our community, Canopy not only thinks about this difference, it takes action to grow our urban forest.
I had the good fortune to be able to help with Canopy's landscaping project at Graham Middle School in Mountain View. I was so impressed with how well organized the project was—there were plants, tools, people, and activities to coordinate. Canopy staff and lead volunteers were knowledgeable, kind, and efficient. Also, I was delighted to see that Canopy is developing young leaders among its volunteers. I drive past Graham several times a week and every time I do, I admire the beautiful landscaping and think of Canopy. As the trees we planted grow and mature, so will my thanks to Canopy for its transformative effect on our neighborhood.
