TREES FOR EVERYBODY!!!


The season has begun! The beautiful weather has arrived and everyone is ready to get outside and start planting. Thanks to the CSX Tree Giveaway, there are 400 more trees in our community! The event was a gathering of happy people
who appreciate the value of trees. Residents in The Set came out for community conversation and to pick up a free Sugar apple, Guava, Persimmon, Bahama strongbark, Wild tamarind, Red maple, Gumbo limbo, and Slash Pine!

TD TREE DAYS IN THE SET



TD Bank and Community Greening transformed a vacant city lot in The Set with 50 new trees. A true collective effort made this beautification project happen. Thank you Ann Stacey-Wright for leading the way; to our beloved board member and landscape architect, Carolyn Pendleton-Parker, for designing the site; Kristyn Cox for coordinating; CG volunteer, Kyle Hoffman, for the 3D renderings; and the various employee advocates working for the City of Delray Beach.  

NEW FRUIT TREES AT PLUMOSA SCHOOL


Sally Smollar, a teacher at Plumosa, is passionate about teaching children where food comes from. CG joined her efforts by planting fruit trees with the students, parents, and teachers (Mr. Seto!) at the school garden. Students will be enjoying Starfruit, Black sapote and Barbados cherry for years to come. Thanks to the students, especially Eva, for this epic thank you card!

TEMPLE SINAI GETTIN' THEIR GREEN ON

Eric Adams and Diane Johnson are leading the temple's youth by organizing park cleanups, tree plantings, and partnering with Community Greening for Tu BiShvat. Tu BiShvat is a Jewish holiday that celebrates responsible stewardship of our planet and trees are planted as a reminder. The kids kicked off their eco-awareness focus with the addition of a Sugar apple and Cattley guava to the temple grounds.

 LUSH COSMETICS WALKIN' THE TALK


Lush Cosmetics - Boca Raton brought out an impressive crew of eco-warriors to remove invasive air potato from Orchard View Park. It was refreshing to meet a group of people who truly represented their company's Green Policy: "we believe in protecting people, animals and the planet. We take our commitment to this seriously....where environmental and social stewardship are critical elements in the business decisions that we make on a daily basis." Thank you Janai and the Lush team for working hard and having fun!

MEET A TREE


"Teaching students to give back to the community and environment is what motivates the teachers. This tree is extra special as it is replacing a non-native tree that was destroyed during Hurricane Irma. Thanks for letting us be a part of Community Greening!"
Joanna Weaver
Physics and Environmental Science Teacher, American Heritage

 DID YOU KNOW?

  • The phrase "Knock on wood" is said to originate from ancient cultures where the people believed that gods lived in trees.
  • Trees buffer noise!  That's one of the reasons residents wanted trees planted at the Community Grove and the SW 3rd lot. Trees are a natural form of sound proofing - absorbing and deflecting sound waves.
