KOREATOWN : Students Plant Jacarandas at School

April 11, 1993|JAKE DOHERTY

After two weeks of learning about trees, second-graders at Wilton Place Elementary School put their knowledge to use last week, helping plant 10 jacaranda trees in their school's front lawn.

The event was the first in the Korean Youth and Community Center's Koreatown Greening Program.

"It's good to see more trees around here," said Alex Cordova, 7.

The students needed little encouragement as they dug their hands into the soil to break up large chunks and mix in peat moss and compost.

"Your little hands do make a difference," Principal Grace Yoon told the students.
