This is a video from our last ceremony at Songbird grove. It’s several years old, but it really captures the spirit of Children & Elders Forest, and the vision of our founder, Joe Grabill!
This past Saturday, Board member, Shamelle Grabill organized a Turtle 🐢 Grove tree checking activity. Board members Rebecca, Mike and Deb O. joined her. We spent an hour checking all 95 trees to make sure they had their tags with readable labels. We also noted if there were any condition issues with any of the trees. Turtle Grove is in full autumn 🍂 colors and is looking great! We also noticed how these more mature trees are acting as a wind break. As soon as we stepped out of the grove, the northwest winds 💨 took our breath away on a chilly and damp morning!
