Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Parks & People Foundation is selling sizable, high-performing, hardy, native trees and shrubs for between $35 and $45 each. Trees and shrubs have been grown using a specialized, natural root production method that yields trees with a 95% survival rate, are drought tolerant, sequester carbon more quickly, and produce fruits, nuts, and seed earlier. The fall tree and shrub sale is an effort of the Park & People Foundation’s Social Enterprises division. All proceeds from the sale will be re-invested in the work on behalf of clean, green, and healthy communities. Visa, MC, Checks, and Cash accepted.
Date: October 4, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: 701 Wyman Park Drive (across from the Stieff Silver building and adjacent to Druid Hill Park).
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.
