PARKS

Parks

Community Greening partners with cities to increase the tree canopy at public parks primarily in low income neighborhoods. Community Greening hosts volunteer planting events that introduce residents to our park system and educate people about the health benefits of being outside.

YOUTH TREE TEAM

Youth Tree Team

The Youth Tree Team employs local youth to improve their neighborhood, to learn about green jobs, and to teach them to be good environmental stewards of the land. The teens get their first work experience by maintaining trees and public green spaces, conducting community outreach, and attending “green collar” enrichment activities.

If you want to be part our youth tree team email us here

SCHOOLS

Schools

Planting trees on school campuses to increase shade and provide cleaner air. A TD GreenStreets grant funded 100 trees to be planted in the retention area in front of SD Spady Elementary School. This year Community Greening will plant 50 trees at Poinciana Elementary School in Boynton Beach with a Community Revitalization grant from the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

If you would like to increase the shade in your school email us here

RESIDENTIAL

Residential Planting Program

Community Greening plants free fruit and native shade trees at private homes in neighborhoods with low tree canopy coverage. Arborists on staff do a species and site selection with the homeowner, call before you dig, and tree installation. Residents receive a free 6’ – 10’ tree that has a retail value of $200 -$300. Many residents say that they will use the fruit to give to their children and share with their neighbors.
