Brad Lancaster and friends greet YBS interns and talk about the importance of native plants, planting the rain, and maintaining established plants.
Lauren and Neydi (interns) dig a basin close to a curb cut to harvest rain water
Paige (Program Manager) poses next to an Ironwood tree wearing their Ironwood Tree Experience shirt!
Jazmy trims the dead ends of branches to make sure this established plant can thrive
Sam (YBS mentor) and Paige work on the rock wall of a water harvesting basin – quite a puzzle to put together.
Jesus (YBS mentor) holds a tool to break ground and dig a basin.
The team takes a break by a partially completed basin, getting excited to plant the Ironwood tree.
Look at those completed basins! They’re ready to harvest rainwater runoff from the street, support native plants and animals, and provide shade.
The YBS team gets ready to head out after finishing the project day.
