Arcadia Elementary Tree Planting Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Would you like to help TreeUtah and local Utahns green their communities? We need volunteers to help plant trees and assist with garden projects. This event is open to public participation. The day will begin with a short on-site “How to Plant a Tree” workshop or a garden tour, and then we’ll dig in. Most planting events and gardening sessions last between 2 and 4 hours. Please RSVP to TreeUtah, so we can give you specific directions and any last-minute information. Wear sturdy shoes, clothes that can get dirty, a hat, and bring sunscreen, drinking water, and a shovel if you have one. See you there!

Date: October 21, 2008
Time: 11:00 a.m.
Location: Arcadia Elementary, 3461 West 4850 South, Salt Lake City.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
