Planting Shade's newest chapter, Planting Shade Israel, hopes to further our organization's goal of improving the environment. Israel, well known for its dry soil and difficult growing conditions is in need of environmental lobbying and education. Planting Shade Israel hopes to use a student-oriented approach to solving such issues, while still continuing to plant trees.
