Plant for the Planet

Pringle Creek Community sponsored the annual Plant for the Planet Academy.

Afterwards, many in the party filtered outside to play and visit and check out Pringle Creek Community."This place has good potential for a disc golf course." "Clouds are a problem for solar power in Germany too."Potluck for 60?
