Pollinater Garden for the Greater Good
As part of our responsibility to our planet and our communities, the AD&V® team worked with the Caras con Causa organization and the Troop 29 of Boys Scouts of America to plant and establish a pollinator garden in Vietnam Estudia.
Vietnam Estudia is an educational center for the development of children and young people in the Vietnam area and nearby communities.
AD&V® team members and students from the Baldwin School of PR, volunteered to help plant the pollinator garden. The pollinator garden was planted to attract bees, butterflies, and birds for them to pollinate and help produce flowers, fruits and vegetables, as well as reforesting mangroves. Plants were donated by the school and we brought in the grapes, lemon, avocado, bananas, and passion fruit plants from AD&V®’s former office Urban Garden. Interlink and F&R Construction Group also pitched in by donating soil, gravel and fences. It was a team effort. Once the planting was done, the town mayor even stopped by to check it out!
This initiative was led by Alejandro Vazquez as part of his Eagle Scout service project and commitment to make a difference in the community. He teamed up with Caras con Causa to create this initiative in order to use the pollinator garden to educate students on how to take care of their community. They believe that education is the key to creating a thriving community.
As of today, the Vietnam community keeps taking care of the garden while it continues to grow. We hope this initiative inspires other schools and communities to make their own pollinator garden and create Places of Purpose!
