Orange County Cactus Planting
They may be called cactus pads, but to CCC Pomona Corpsmembers they’re more like cactus patties—as in hamburger patties.
After all they are using barbecue tongs to grab them—but instead of fresh off the grill, they’re fresh into the ground. Rather than feeding people, they’re being used to fend off wildfire.
It’s a unique project putting prickly pear cactus back into its native habitat, while also protecting Orange County communities.
