From time to time they have a tree planting days… So we decided that we would like nothing better than to spend a day tree planting. On Saturday, Human Right’s Day, we headed out to Mitchells Plain to plant trees. Well, our gang had the best day ever and planting trees, with GreenPop, is right up there on the things to “add to the calendar whenever we can” list.
