Happy National NeighborWoods month!
National NeighborWoods® Month is Alliance for Community Trees’ annual campaign to plant and care for community trees during the month of October. Each year, tens of thousands of volunteers take action to make their communities greener and healthier by planting trees—turning their neighborhoods into vibrant, livable NeighborWoods®! Join the celebration! (Alliance for Community Trees Oct. 1, 2014)
We could not reach our goals of a greener, more livable neighborhood through trees without the stewardship of volunteers. Their hard work, determination, and commitment to improve our urban forests is unmatched by any other formal organization. This spirit of tree stewardship is celebrated throughout our nation during the month of October.
Does your community have an event to recognize this community effort of planting and caring for trees? Missouri Community forestry Council would love to hear what your activity is. Please send information to ContactUs@mocommunitytree.org. We will share this list which may help others plan future events.
You don’t have an event planned yet? You still have time…keep it simple, keep it a celebration.
Encourage and thank tree volunteers for they are planting our future and it truly does take a village.
