On October 17, Goleta Valley Beautiful hosted a tree care and landscaping event at Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta. Twenty-one volunteers contributed 67 service hours to plant six Coast Live Oak trees, extend the irrigation system and move a truckload of mulch to prevent erosion. They also planted flats of rosemary along with adjustments to the weedblock and mulch. Several natal plum bushes were also planted. Volunteer groups represented included Dos Pueblos Leadership, Beautify Dos Pueblos, Dos Pueblos students and parents and Goleta Valley Beautiful community volunteers.
This project was sponsored by the Alliance for Community Trees/Home Depot Foundation NeighborWoods Grant, California ReLeaf 2009 Tree Planting Grant, Santa Barbara Foundation, UCSB Coastal Fund, Devereux of California, and hundreds of Goleta Valley Beautiful donor members.
