Happen, Inc. and Community Sprouts joined forces with a goal to help reestablish native plants and trees in Northside and surrounding areas.
Last spring children attending the Whiz Kids tutoring program and the M.O.R.E. program at Chase Elementary School worked hand and hand with Community Sprouts and Happen volunteers to plant over 100 acorns in the Happen “Do Goods Garden. ” Now, Happen is fostering over 70 seedlings eager to find a new and permanent home.
The event will take place at Happen, Inc. on Saturday, November 22, from 10:00AM to 1:00PM. In addition to your oak seedling, all registered new “parents” will receive a free tree sleeve and fiberglass tree stake to help ensure optimal growing conditions.
There will be volunteer horticulturists on site giving instructions and guidance on how to properly plant and care for your new baby oak. These volunteers will also be giving out tips on how to get your friends and family excited and involved in the tree planting fun.
“It’s been a great growing season, not just for the plants but for young minds as the kids had a blast planting and learning in the garden,” said Tommy Rueff.
The only thing that Happen requests in exchange for your own oak tree and growing supplies, is that once a year on the anniversary of your tree adoption, you send a picture of you and your tree back to Happen, Inc. so they can see and celebrate what the children Northside started from just one seed.
If you would like to learn more about this adoption process please contact Tommy Rueff at Happen Inc. To receive the free tree sleeve and stake, please register on site, by phone (513) 751.2345 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, November 11th.
