The cold didn't stop some people from getting outside and doing some gardening. Students from Bruce Drysdale Elementary joined members of the Hendersonville Tree Board to plant trees. It's all part of this year's tree planting project, which gives the school grounds 35 new trees, and five more that will be planted in the spring. The tree board wanted to get the students involved with the planting and get them excited about the trees growing too.
"We want the children to think of these as their trees as well. Some of the first graders, will in 5 years when they leave they, see much larger trees. They won't see these little bitty ones that are here today and they can take some ownership," said Tamara Betteridge of the City Tree Board.
They had such a great volunteer turnout, instead of a two-day project, they got it all done Friday.
