Worthy Garden Club To Plant One Million Trees

BEND, OR -- The Worthy Garden Club has launched a campaign with several partners to plant one million trees in the next three years. Club Executive Director David Blair says the goa of "Operation Appleseed" is to restore damaged forests in Central Oregon and two others areas of the state. Operation Appleseed’s efforts will support reforestation activities on both private and public lands. One area is the Audubon Society's Ten Mile Creek Sanctuary. Blair says the Worthy Garden Club, philanthropic arm of Worthy Brewing, has put up $1,000,000 in seed money for the project. He says they have partnered with the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests as well as non-profit organizations to plant trees on federal and private lands.
