Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
We will be gathering to celebrate the kick- off of our 2008 NeighborWoods tree deliveries. Speakers will say a few words about the benefits and goals of the NeighborWoods program. There will be an activity booth. Volunteers will deliver trees to residents and assist in planting and mulching.
Date: October 10, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Boylan Heights Historic District.
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.
