Ginger's hurricane update
Many of you have asked about Ginger Brown Vandermeer
, a co-founder of West Cook Wild Ones, who lives in St. Croix. She was safe with family in Florida, and her house is intact. Ginger credits her trees. “They buffeted the wind and gave their lives for the people, animals, and dwellings. We didn't even have any mud slides.” Winds of 175 miles per hour came through her valley, downing many trees. She and neighbors all have their roofs. “ I don't know how else to prove how important plants and trees are to our environment.” Ginger will replant when she’s back.
