Yesterday two of our Tuesday Seed Group team members went over to Rhode Street School to attend a special presentation and to pick up four pear trees for our backyard garden.  The trees come from a newly formed charitable trust, called the Avis Leeson Fruit Tree Trust.  Avis is 80 now, and has devoted a large part of her life to providing and helping schools with the orchard and vegetable garden.  She has helped our school a lot over the last five years.  Yesterday, the trust gave away 1000 pear trees to schools and kindergartens.  They have committed to the next ten years to give away 1000 trees each year.  Once the trees are planted a data base will be set up to record there distribution.  Our four pear trees will add great variety to our school orchard.
