Soil and Water Conservation District Small Projects and Community Events (SPACE) grant. The grant, which was spearheaded by Tree Team member Rebecca Wetherby, is for the care and maintenance of the Living Landscapes project that was planted at the Meek High School. For nine weeks, starting the first week in July, two Meek High School students, Andrew Prasch and Brandon Ryan, will water, weed and provide maintenance to the newly planted trees at the High School. The grant not only provides care and maintenance but also summer income and a vested interest in the trees for the students.
