Detroit – October 1, 2006. The Greening of Detroit today announced that it will plant/maintain 6 trees as part of their Rosemont Acacia Park Planting. This event is one of more than 100 regreening efforts throughout the country being promoted during October, which has been declared National NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit, the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). The Greening of Detroit is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.
The City of Detroit obtained a DTE grant to plant trees at Flinstone Park in the Rosemont Acacia Neighborhood. The Greening will be working hard with the community to beautify the neighborhood. This will be one of our smaller planting but we’ll still provide a big tree planting experience!
“It’s great to be working on an important regreening effort at a time when other organizations are doing so as well,” said Rebecca Salminen Witt. “Part of our goal is to draw attention to the good work being done at the grassroots level all across the country to improve urban and community forests.”
The Greening of Detroit’s celebration will take place as follows:
Oct 14, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
