Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
Dobson Field is a fifteen year old park with no trees in the small farming town of Exeter, a town that has been hit with a severe agricultural depression but is coming together to complete this project. On October 11th, we’ll also install an irrigation system and upgrade the jogging trail. This is the first project of a new non-profit organization, of which the Mayor of Exeter is a founding member. The project will be led by a local high school senior, and joined the 4-H Club, Boy Scouts, and FFA chapter.
Date: October 11, 2008
Time: 8:00 a.m.
Location: Dobson Field.
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.
