Planting good deeds in Bubuieci – 2

plantam-fapte-bune-in-moldova-bubuieci-2016-0

November 19, 2016 – the second edition of the action “Planting Good Deeds in Moldova” (you can read about the first one here), and the culmination of the thirteen months of work in Bubuieci.

Highlights:
54 volunteers, with half of them locals and another half from various parts of Moldova,
– about 570 seedlings – planted as a live hedge along the lower part of the park (robinia and dog rose), and inside of its territory (walnuts and ash),
– about a hundred future oaks – continuing work on the tree nursery,
– the first ever mobile & sectional toilet in Bubuieci,
– and the first tours, which allowed our guests to get acquainted with the process of creating a park, and to become aware of their contribution to its prosperity.

Sincere thanks to everyone that was there!

That was so much more wonderful than the last year – in 2015, it was the first edition, hundreds of people, thousands of trees, music, etc… but now, with a smaller group and with a grown team, you feel you are really inviting people in a place that is already “yours”. Now, you can share with them the challenges and achievements, you can remember each face, you can let them contribute and include them in the story of the Bubuieci park.

But regardless of all those changes, same as the last year, we worked until the early autumn dusk again.
