San Jose to Celebrate National NeighborWoods Month

Sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation
San Jose, Calif. – October 1, 2006. Our City Forest today announced that it will host three Single Increment Demonstrations. These events are three 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). Our City Forest is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.

“It’s great to be working on an important regreening effort at a time when other organizations are doing so as well,” said Monica Nanez. “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.” Our City Forest seeks to cultivate a greener, healthier urban environment and a renewed sense of community by involving Silicon Valley residents in the understanding, planting, and care of the urban forest.
Our City Forest’s celebration will take place as follows:
Oct 14, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1217 Roycott Way.
Oct 21, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 6462 Camelia Dr.
Oct 28, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 2409 Apsis Ave.
