Community ReLeaf ... for gardens, trees and kids! and the YEL Team (Youth Environmental Leaders) are educational, community-based grass roots movements dedicated to improving the quality of life in our cities by planting, protecting, preserving and promoting our most vital natural resources; our tree heritage and our collective urban garden.
You can create a YEL Team for your community. YEL stands for Youth Environmental Leaders and that means YOU!
By active, hands-on participation, you can learn things like organic gardening, tree planting and care and all about California's native plants through enhancements that we do in Irvine, out in the wild.
YEL Team motto: "We observe, preserve, conserve, and have the nerve, to serve! We root for change ... and make a difference."
YEL Team ideal: ""The more we plant, the more we grow!"
YEL Team cheer: "Go (clap,clap,clap), plant (clap, clap, clap), win (clap, clap, clap). Go, plant, win ... let's just do it!
"Go.Plant.Win!" Word up!!
We plant trees and gardens, as well as conduct educational seminars for homeowners, businesses and schools to make people aware of the value of trees and gardens in our communities.
Every other year we have a YEL Team Eco-Pep Rally and Conference. We have a right to YEL for more trees, YEL for more gardens, YEL for a better world!
So hey, do you wanna YEL? Okay then ... just do it!
