Our Community Engagement program continues to grow! This quarter Capital Trees sponsored four private workdays, one community work day, and ten Wednesday maintenance sessions. Volunteers contributed 229 hours of service to the gardens from Great Shiplock Park to the Low Line Green. In the first two quarters of this fiscal year, we have logged over 402 volunteer hours. Capital Trees is committed to maintaining our projects so that they remain spaces that invite persons to gather and improve the environment. Our growing volunteer core are a key to this commitment. THANK YOU!!
Thanks to the private groups who volunteered with us this quarter, One South Realty, Catholic Diocese of Richmond, BHE GT&S, and ONE-Line.
Capital Trees also sponsored two Friends of Capital Trees tours in November and December that focused on the gardens in late fall/early winter and provided an update on Capital Trees’ programs.
