Vacaville and Will C. Wood high school students, inspired by the “Plant 1000 Flowers” video featuring Vacaville High assistant principal Ron Thomas, brought a message of peace Saturday to the sidewalks of Andrew Park.
Students from both school came down early to the weekly farmers market and covered the ground with flowers and positive messages using safe, nontoxic sidewalk chalk.
The idea was presented at a recent Vacaville Youth Roundtable meeting and was received with enthusiasm by the group.The goal is simple: Plant seeds of love, acceptance and goodness in the Vacaville community. The idea came to Thomas as he was listening to the way teenagers were talking to one another.
