Ark Eden, a local environmental education charity organization on Lantau aimed to plant 1000 trees for Earth day. I met with over 60 volunteers at Mui Wo, Lantau and waited for the Sanpans to take us to Man Kok Tsui. As the Sanpans approached the pier rain struck. I was not looking forward to digging in the mud. Luckily as we reached our destination the rain turned to drizzle and then disappeared. The tree planting site was on the side of a mountain spotted with a few ancestral graves overlooking the ocean. This area was known to have had many fires from paper burning ceremonies and it was the perfect area to plant our trees. Luckily from the recent rain, the ground was soft and easy to dig! The volunteers came from an array of backgrounds and professions and were all ages. It was a great day that ended with a magnificent sunset. After all our hard work Jenny Quinton invited us all back to her Ark Eden paradise for one of her infamous Eco Parties including a vegetarian feast, music, dancing and always good times. Keep in touch with your community and help out with future environmental projects with Ark Eden! http://arkeden.wordpress.com
