On Sunday, May 4, visitors were invited to the Skirball to adopt a pomegranate tree. David Burns and Austin Young were on site and distributed 150 young trees and encouraged recipients to plant them in public space or along the borders of private property, where the fruits will be shared and enjoyed by the community. Each recipient was asked to sign an adoption form promising to plant the tree immediately and care for it until it is established and healthy.
