Planting Trees

Hi gardeners – WE NEED YOUR HELP ON OCTOBER 11 th:

As you may know, Casey Tree Foundation is donating seven trees to be planted around the Mann playgrounds (and one near the trailer) so that we will have better shade in those areas in the future. While Casey donates the trees and supplies, Horace Mann must plant the trees and maintain them for the two years it takes for them to get fully established. Our plan is for each classroom at Mann to adopt one tree and be a part of the maintenance process, watering, charting its progress, etc.

We are looking for fourteen adults to help with the planting of these seven trees. Casey will use a machine auger to begin a hole for each tree and then volunteers will complete the digging, planting and supplementation of soil.

The planting will take place on Thursday October 11th , 8:45-11am (rain or shine). Check in on the Tot Lot.

PLEASE RSVP if you can help with the planting that day!
send your name, email address, phone number to bushaw@american.edu
