By now you’ve probably read or heard about the East Row Tree Revitalize Team's Fall planting campaign. The response has far exceeded our expectations and we've received orders for 150 street trees! WOW!!!
To get all 150 trees planted, LOTS of volunteers are needed for planting on October 15. We also need help planning this fun day! Sign up now by going to eastrowgardenclub.org/trees. Volunteers are needed for all types of roles, so don’t let any physical limitations keep you from signing up! In addition to tree planters, we need event planners, coordinators, and folks who can make yummy food for our volunteers. This will be a great way to meet new people and make a difference in your neighborhood! We welcome church groups, school groups, scout troops, and kids accompanied by an adult. Organize a group of your friends and neighbors to join in the effort! Please note, even if you've mentioned you'll help, it's important to sign up on the website.
The East Row Tree Revitalize team is part of East Row Garden Club which is helping to fund this effort. A significant amount of pre-work will be done by the City of Newport. The city will grind any stumps, pre-dig the holes and cut out any sidewalks as needed. Trees will be delivered to each site, and on planting day volunteer teams will plant the trees. Volunteer training will be provided, and homeowners will receive information about how to water and care for their new tree.
This will be a really exciting day, so please consider joining us!
