As Yavapai College viticulture and enology student Jason Crut knelt in the dirt Saturday, he pointed out an area to other volunteers that needed planting at the school's Plant-a-Vine event in Clarkdale."We had 150 people committed to come plant on Saturday, and we had over 200 people show up to help," said Tom Schumacher, dean of Yavapai College's Verde Valley campus. "We had parents bring their children to take part in the planting so their kids could see how the vines grow during their lifetimes. Those vines will be growing 30 years from now."
