Ranger Matt

2013 & 2012

Root For Peace donated another  500 plants for land restoration  Dec. 2013 This is our second year to donate. Last year we donated to National Parks Day Sept. 2012 in John Muir's National Historic Park in Martinez.  

John Muir was many things, inventor, immigrant, botanist, glaciologist, writer, family man, co-founder of the Sierra Club, fruit rancher. But it was John Muir's love of nature, and the preservation of it, that we can thank him for today. Muir's nature writings convinced U.S. presidents to protect Yosemite, Sequoia, Grand Canyon, and Mt. Rainier as National Parks.

Marin Master Gardeners - Blackies Pasture and Marin School Garden projects
Root For Peace donated 100 new plants to the Blackies Pasture Native garden and 300 Plants to the local school garden.

In the early 1990s the entrance to Blackie’s Pasture was a mud hole in winter and a dust bowl in summer. 1995 Harvey Rogers, a local Master Gardener, heard of the project and became involved. It wasn’t long until he had organized a larger band of volunteers comprising other Master Gardeners and gardening enthusiasts. With the natural environment and water conservation in mind, they developed a theme for the garden utilizing native plants. Over the years volunteers have given the garden their creativity, regular, ongoing care, and loving attention. Harvey is still there today inspiring both plants and people.

Root For Peace also donated 1500 plants for the Mount Tamalpais - Myrtle Project to restore barren hillside with native plants to reduce erosion.
