Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
The area around the Broadway United Methodist Church at Fall Creek and College Avenue has historically been a neighborhood filled with community gardens and fruit trees. We will work to restore this tradition by planting over 40 fruit trees at the church and throughout the neighborhood.
Date: October 11, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Broadway UMC, 609 E. 29th Street.
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.
