Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Savannah Tree Foundation will be attending the annual fall festival at Bamboo Farms & Coastal Gardens to unveil plans for a new tree nursery at Bamboo Farms and to solicit volunteers for this next endeavor. The focus will be on outreach, education about the importance of urban canopy trees, and in culling a new set of volunteers to help with establishing and maintaining a tree nursery. We expect about 500 attendees.
Date: October 25, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: 2 Canebrake Road, Savannah.
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.
