Bodhi Surf and Case Western Reserve University worked hand-in-hand to start off the 2011 new year in good spirits with the planting of 40+ plants. The community service learning projects took place at the entrance to the Uvita sector of the Marino Ballena National Park and the local elementary school La Flor de Bahia. With the purchase of shovels, rakes, tropical plants, fertilizer and the like, Bodhi Surf members and Case students “got busy with it” while light showers addressed our sweating issues. By the end of the 2-day project we had “beautified” two important areas for our community. Thanks Case Western Reserve!
The Case Western Reserve University Contribution Continues
The Case Western students’ work may have “ended” but with their donations we have been able to also paint the front of the school, plant “rabo leon” with the help of friends from Ruta Verde, the Sierra Club, and our friends at La Cusinga. Futhermore, the shovels, rakes, and hand planting utensils will be used during our most current project to transform the back of the school into an outdoor learning classroom equipped with biogardens, a recycling center, and tree and plant nursery. By putting tools in our hands, Case Western is actively contributing to the sustainable development of our community. Thank you Case Western Reserve University, and trip leaders Angela and Nicole! We can’t wait to see you in 2012!
