Michael Welch, a homeless person living at the Albany Bulb, joined a group of young people planting trees at the former landfill recently. They hauled compost, dug holes with shovels, and planted a dozen fruit trees at various spots of the Bulb. Welch planted a fig tree near his camp, which was the first tree he had ever planted in his life. Watch the video below for more of the story.
