LifeSource People Volunteering in Salem
LifeSource staff, family, and friends are active volunteering in the community. In addition to community donations, we spend time together working for the enjoyment of all people of the Salem area. During this tree planting event, we worked with Friends of Trees to plant over 40 trees in beautiful Cascades Gateway Park.
Giving this sapling a head start with a bucket of rich soil, and clean water.
Easing this sapling’s root ball into it’s new home, we hope it provides shade and enjoyment for many future generations.
Sturdy support so this sapling survives Willamette valley winds and weather.
It was a perfect, late February day, sunny, yet cool enough for digging, hauling, planting, and surveying the great work.
It was great to be a part of a large group of like-minded volunteers from the Salem community.
Dear Tree Friends,
Thank you so much for your hard work this past Saturday! Sunshine and smiles had everyone in great spirits as you tackled 41 trees to be planted before 1pm. On top of the trees that were placed in the ground, you also helped spread 8 cubic yards of mulch around the previoously planted trees at this Park as well. Now Cascades Gateway is feeling the love by new critters in the area and of course park goers too. In just a few short hours you all contributed so much to this park we can’t thank you enough.
