Supplies and Tools:
Michael Edwardton works for a program called Uncommon Good that teaches students about green energy. His home is located in Upland, California, a beautiful neighborhood with mature trees in a rural setting. He had just purchased a century-old home and wanted to preserve its look. Being a principal member of Uncommon Good, he was using the house to teach others how to go green.
This post shows the five steps how a disregarded Palm tree turned into a pot for local home grown tomatoes.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows Michael back yard is full of Palm trees. Some bearing fruit and some just provide shade.
Step 2: It was the annual back yard clean up and we decided to remove dead palms and dead branches and make the back yard usable again. Fig.2 shows that some of the palms had fruit but most of the palms were used for shade. Though Michael did not eat any of the palm fruit, he believed that the local wildlife should and he kept the dates until most were eater and the branches were dead.
