Created Morizukuri 2020 logo for promotion and distributed a complimentary water bottle w/ logo to promote event.  Holes were dug with auger prior to event / trees were placed in the holes to confirm Morizukuri guidelines were followed with planting diversification. 


Other comments

COVID-19 challenge with impact to participation due to pandemic. This event was open to PEMC employees only, due to social distance requirements. The original event was planned with a large celebration that included catering for all PEMC TMs, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions the original large event was cancelled and planting groups were limited in size with multiple days. 

Based on a reflection completed by participants, the event was highly rated. Comments from TMs that they would like to do another Morizukuri in the spring and that they would like for family members to have the opportunity to participate.
