4th Annual Pinwheel Planting


At the Solvang pinwheel planting

Pinwheel Plantings are an annual Child Abuse Prevention Month tradition. Pinwheels exemplify the innocence of youth. Groups raise awareness of child abuse in their area by coming together at a designated place and time to "plant" pinwheels in the ground. Each pinwheel represents 1 in 5 children suspected of being abused. Photos of the plantings are often shared on social media with hashtags such as #PinwheelsForPrevention or #PassThePinwheel. This year’s plantings were sponsored by North County Rape Crisis & Child Protection Center, People Helping People, and First 5, and they occurred on April 3 in Lompoc, Santa Maria, and Solvang. Check out this photo album from this year’s plantings.
