Saturday morning was a barn raising! It took a community effort of all ages to plant 90 trees in Mike Machek Boy Scout Park as part of the City of Delray Beach‘s 10,000 Tree Campaign. First timers, regulars, old people, young people, Lt. Daniela Quinn and her friends from City of Delray Beach Police Department, the Cub Scouts Pack 333, Atlantic H.S. IB Program…everyone came out to dig in and plant trees along the Lake Ida Corridor. The trees have a beautiful new home along the Lake Ida Corridor. Everyone worked hard and filled up their karma bank to spend over the holiday break.
