Editor, Our first Plant for the Planet: Whidbey academy on Saturday, March 28 was a great success. We certified 15 Climate Justice Ambassadors who join 300 in the USA and 340,000 worldwide. The children had an exciting day. They learned about the Climate/Ocean crisis, climate justice, how to speak in public, provide positive feedback to their peers and work together. The weather was wonderful.
