Arbor Day at Auberge du Soleil

During Earth Month- the month of April- an olive tree, a symbol of peace, was displayed in the Auberge du Soleil courtyard.  Guests and Auberge du Soleil associates were encouraged to write a Sustainability Pledge on a “wish” tag to be tied on the tree.

We planted the olive tree in our sculpture garden on Arbor Day, April 26.  The Arbor Day Foundation began in 1972.  The mission of the foundation is to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.

Below is a collection of our favorite Sustainability Pledges for 2013.
