Fremont Morning Rotary and Project Green Earth volunteer team from Fremont partnered together to address tree planting to protect the environment.  Last March, the team scattered over 5000 seed-balls, most of them made by school kids using seeds from local trees with 100+ years of life span such as Redwood, Pine, Oak, California Pepper, Magnolia and Olive. These seed balls were scattered in lands located in Fremont and Scotts Valley in California from October 2020 through March 2021.

After a few months, we are noticing that those seeds in the seed-balls started to come to life and grow. We observed many plants, some as small as 2 inches tall and some 2-feet tall.  We just help the environment a little bit and let nature take care of the rest.  We are so excited to see such successful results.

Because of our efforts and success with our seed-ball scattering, our team has been granted by a land trust, access to over 1200 acres of land for us to scatter seed-balls and plant trees.  We, especially the kids, are very much looking forward to our next seed-ball scattering on July 10.
