Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
The City of Carmel, the Carmel Urban Forestry Committee, and the Fairgreen Trace homeowners are partnering for a tree planting in the Fairgreen Trace neighborhood. A total of 33 trees will be planted along Fairgreen Dr. and Quail Glen Court in Fairgreen Trace. An additional 25 trees and 45 shrubs will be planted along the Monon Grenway to act as a buffer for the Monon Farms neighborhood. This is the 13th year for Carmel’s Fall Neighborhood Tree Planting Program. Carmel Urban Foresters Scott Brewer, Daren Mindham, and Nichole Passineau, along with the Carmel Urban Forestry Committee, will lead the tree planting and supervise the volunteer groups which will be comprised of neighborhood residents, representatives from Northview Christian Life Church, Indiana Tree Stewards, and Carmel High School Environmental Science teacher George Ohmer and his students.
Date: October 18, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Just north of Bainbridge and Jerome Avenue (last stop of the 4 train) near the Walking Path to Mosholu Golf Course sign.
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.
