Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Trees Columbus will host a tree planting workshop on proper tree planting techniques, ideal time to plant, selecting tree planting location, and other basic planting tips. Before the noon-hour workshop closes, we will plant 1-3 trees to demonstrate proper planting method.

Date: October 9, 2008
Time: 12:00 p.m.
Location: Spencer Environmental Center: 303 12th Street, Columbus, GA 31901.
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.
