Earth Day: It’s a Coosa tradition

By Tess Malijenovsky
Last Friday, April 20, fourth grade students at Coosa Elementary left their roots by planting yellow Lantana and blue Agapanthus donated by Team Depot, The Home Depot’s community service team.
Creating an Earth Day tradition at Coosa Elementary, school counselor Nicole Bossak collaborated with The Home Depot for a second year. Team Depot volunteers, William and Wandra, came to Coosa around 8 a.m. with a bounty of donated flowering perennial plants. The team pre-dug holes for the students around the Crape Myrtle that last year’s fourth graders planted before they graduated.
Students were excited to come outdoors early that morning and learn about planting with William and Wandra. They formed groups of four, each student with a different role, putting into the soil a flower that they will see each year that they come back to visit Coosa.
Through The Home Depot Foundation and its ongoing partnerships with nonprofit organizations, Team Depot donates countless hours, tools and supplies each year to community service projects. For their last project, Team Depot paired with Habitat for Humanity to build a wheelchair ramp for a paraplegic citizen.
