“Watching the young kids’ faces when the first bees and butterflies approached the flowers they had just planted a few minutes ago, was a very special moment.”
That was the impression that Edna Garcia, Community Investment Specialist for TransCanada in Mexico, got during the first School Planting Day, organized by TransCanada and Save Our Monarchs (SOM).
