SVTP hosts at least one volunteer tree planting event annually in conjunction with the City of Cupertino Tree Department. They will provide designated planting spots, trees, tools, and onsite support by a couple of staff members. You will love the time outdoors, burn some calories, and have the great feeling of planting a tree.
I encourage everyone to watch this talk.
“My country and my people have done nothing to contribute to global warming, but we are already bearing the brunt of its consequences.”
This TED talk speaker is from Bhutan, a small state located in South-Central Asia. By providing free electricity to rural farmers, going paperless, and maintaining a “net carbon sink”, Bhutan has become completely carbon-neutral as a means of countering global warming. I think there’s a lot to take away from this TED talk.
