Ukraine, October 2020
Volunteers of the Know Thyself as Soul Center – Uzhgorod turned to the municipal department with a proposal to plant 12 Cryptomeria Japonica “Elegans” trees in the Pobeda Park. All trees were provided by one of our volunteers as a gift from his nursery.
At the end of September we were given permission to plant in the park. A team of volunteers discussed the charity which we called “Plant Your Tree”. We distributed tasks among the volunteers and purchased the necessary equipment.
On the appointed day the volunteers gathered in the park. At first we prepared the trees and identified places for digging. Then we began to plant young seedlings in place of old trees cut down.
While planting, many people passed by. Residents living in this area supported us with their smiles and thanked us for landscaping the park.
