My younger brother is in town. On his very first day in Portland we joined up with Friends of Trees, loaded up the trailer and planted trees around the neighborhood. Our crew (an all bicycle crew), after getting lost and crossing the freeway a couple times too many, planted six trees around NE Glisan and 73rd, including two in a much needed spot on Burnside.
Overall there was a great turnout for the event, and the weather was brilliant. We put a total of 230 trees in the ground that day, and I learned that plantings happen every week.
The new trailer made at Rejuiced Bikes worked out great! That bin fit in well, and the bucket on the back is very useful. It drew a lot of attention.
Not a bad intro to Portland, I think he's hooked.
