GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Allen “AJ” Sohn and his team of civil engineers finished Earth Week celebrations by planting 17 trees along the troop walk on Goodfellow after Earth Day to show that they will continue to enriching the environment beyond Earth Day.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now,” said Sohn.

During Earth Week, San Angelo master gardeners provided seminars to educate members of Goodfellow on topics such as water harvesting water, native plants and proper lawn care.

Sohn implored that more Goodfellow members seek new ways to deepen general awareness of environmental practice and how it impacts community relations.
