Throughout the pandemic, we have been hard at work spreading joy and connecting neighbors. Through our unique Trees in Trunks events, livestreamed tree care workshops, and neighborhood plantings with our dynamic Youth Tree Team, we are still bringing people together while we’re staying physically apart.
We are proud and excited to share that Community Greening has planted over 5,000 trees with 4,000 volunteers in parks, schools, neighborhoods, and urban orchards. These trees will cool and clean the air, reduce energy usage, filter stormwater, and feed people for decades to come.
Our approach is getting noticed. Some exciting highlights that have us looking forward to a brighter, greener future:
- Impact 100 Palm Beach County’s award increases our capacity to plant and maintain trees
- A new contract with the City of Delray Beach will help us plant 2,000 trees this year
- TD Bank Tree Days national grant award planted 45 trees at Betty Thomas Park
- The Youth Tree Team will continue working throughout the year thanks to support from the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County
The work continues because of these generous funders and donors who believe in our mission. Please consider joining us in our efforts to build a better community by making a tax-deductible donation to Community Greening. Your generosity helps ensure our sustainability!
