Our spring street tree planting is coming up!

Please mark your calendars for Saturday, April 22 at 9:30 AM.

We’ll meet at our usual spot – the community garden on Neumann Goretti’s campus (entrance on Watkins between 10th & 11th St.).  We’ll get everyone acquainted with tree planting basics and then we’ll head out to the planting sites in small groups of 3 or so people. We’ll need a few folks to volunteer as “runners,” delivering some of the heavier items (stake drivers, trees) to each group. Gloves and tools provided; please wear layers and comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

*Coffee and pastries from a local shop will be provided*

RSVP by email or on the Facebook event invitation.

Street Tree Canvassing
We’re accepting street tree applications for our Fall 2017 planting, now until May 6. If you know anyone who is interested in a tree, please send them this link to apply. We can get significantly more applications if we do some door-to-door canvassing and hang flyers on well-traveled routes. We could really use some help with this effort! Email beautification@epcrossing.org if you’re interested in helping out and we can provide you with printed flyers (also attached here).

Please email if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions!

All our welcome to attend our zoning meeting on *TUESDAY*, February 9th @ 7PM. Please note the change of day of week to Tuesday to avoid Ash Wednesday conflicts.
