The Tap Initiative April Trip #1

Hi guys! Last month, I attended my third Tap Initiative Trip at the same local temple that I went to before. However, this trip was the Castro Valley’s event, while the new Native American center is Quarry Lane's event. Today, I will talk about my experience at the local temple and what we did to help for the second time! 


We were instructed to clear a pathway to their shed with electrical wires and such from their solar panels, which I believe power their land. I arrived at 10:30 am, and it lasted until 3:30 pm. We started by clearing the path using shears and gloves, finding that pulling the weeds and grass with our bare hands was seemingly better.  


This took us to lunch at 12:30 pm, where we had pizza. Next, we started clearing an even longer path to their fruit trees, and we discovered a chainsaw that made the process go by much faster. We finished that and started on another section of their garden, where we trimmed the plants and uprooted the weeds.

My second Tap Trip was such a fun experience, and I cannot wait to talk about helping cultural minorities at our Native American center, where we did all sorts of things for organizing and labeling a few weeks ago. I will write about it soon!
