L.I.D. Landscapes Donates and Plants Tree for Mapleton Early Childhood Center
December 17, 2014- Boulder, CO— Originally an elementary school built in 1888 that was closed approximately 10 years ago, Mapleton Early Childhood Center in Boulder, Colorado, was recently reopened after a thorough and creative renovation. It is now Boulder Valley School District’s first facility dedicated entirely to preschool students. Mapleton Early Childhood Center serves a diverse population of children from a wide array of neighborhood and needs.
When the preschool students at Mapleton started their unit about trees, Megan Dubofsky, one of the parent volunteers, had an idea for some hands-on learning. Dubofsky contacted L.I.D. Landscapes to see if they would donate a tree for the children to plant. After a few phone calls, Dan Quakenbush and his team at L.I.D. Landscapes arrived at the school and planted an American Linden, surrounded by an audience of wide-eyed preschoolers.The children dug in and got their hands dirty, literally. They helped peel back the burlap on the root ball of the tree, dug the hole for the tree’s new home and added soil amended with organic matter for the grand finale. Throughout the experience they asked questions such as, “How big will this tree get?” and “What will the leaves look like?” The preschoolers learned where trees come from, how to water and take care of them, and the importance of taking care of nature and landscape.
"We really appreciated the beautiful tree donation from L.I.D.,” Dubofsky said. “The children were so excited, and they will always have the memory of participating in the planting. L.I.D. could not have been more helpful and pleasant to work with."
Leonor Rosser, Community Liaison at Mapleton said she appreciated how L.I.D. Landscapes planted the tree, “while the children observed and asked questions. They involved the preschoolers throughout the whole process, making it totally interactive and hands on.”
“We are very grateful for this opportunity,” Rosser said. “We are delighted to see a new tree growing in the school yard, a tree that will grow along with our amazing preschoolers!"
Habitat For Humanity: L.I.D. designed and supervised construction of Harmony Haven, a four-plex in Boulder, Colorado with generous donations from Boxelder Creek Nursery, Lefthand Valley Nursery, Green Spot Nursery, Pioneer Sand Company, Sturtz & Copeland and Rainbird.
Attention Homes: L.I.D. Landscapes held a Potting Party that raised a charitable contribution to Attention Homes!
