More than 25 students planted seedlings around Hopewell Middle School's campus on Jan. 21. The students, who were from all grade levels, are part of an environmental club headed by Council member and teacher Tina D'Aversa and teachers Tom Sewell and Deb Lajewski. Additionally, some of the students are part of other environmental initiatives including Eco Explorers and Jr. Beta.
Bill Bailey from Bailey Farm and Gardens, Inc. and Milton Arborist Mark Law assisted the students in proper planting techniques. The seedlings were donated by the Milton Grows Green committee
