Why is Community Greening important to you?

I value being part of an organization that is focused on engaging local communities in planting trees. Trees are the building blocks to safer, healthier and more connected neighborhoods. Community Greening involves many people in being part of the solution to the environmental challenges we face today. The approach is simple and the benefits last long into the future.

Where is a Green Space in Palm Beach County you like to visit?

As a true plant nerd, I enjoy Mounts Botanical Garden located in West Palm Beach. It is a beautiful collection of plants with lots of interesting, themed gardens and mature trees. Walking around there is surprisingly peaceful given that it is located right next to the airport.
