The Problem

Our group of 8 elementary aged kids decided they wanted to benefit people, animals AND the environment and earn money for an apple tree and plant it on school grounds.

Our Plan

Our group sold lemonade at a stand at the local library to earn $60 to go toward an apple tree. The tree nursery donated the remaining $40 when they sold us the $100 tree for the amount we earned. Students then dug the hole and planted the 6 foot tall tree. We eagerly await spring to be sure our tree made it through the Colorado winter.
