4-H member leads tree planting in San Bruno

Apr 25, 2012

More than 250 people helped plant trees and other plants in San Bruno on Earth Day to green up a neighborhood charred by a devastating fire a year and a half ago, reported Sergio Quintana on KGO-TV, the ABC affiliate in San Francisco.

The planting event was the brainchild of 13-year-old Julien Levy. Through his efforts, the local 4-H Club, a few Boy Scout troops and resident volunteers turned out to plant the trees.

"It means, kind of, not only a tree and maybe a source of food and fruit, but maybe a token of hope that the renaissance of San Bruno may be beginning," Levy said.
