The GPRA Beautification Committee completed their back-to-school project at Ginter Park Elementary School with colorful planters to cheer children, parents and teachers and perhaps add educational opportunities.
GPRA also partnered with the school to request new trees for their schoolyard, and five trees have been awarded by the Richmond Tree Stewards Community Roots Program. Our November project will be assisting the school to plant the trees. Planting Day is Saturday, November 2.
On that day we will need at least 10 people to help dig holes, fill in dirt, water trees, and to mulch. Two Richmond tree stewards will be on site to help with advice on planting and tree locations. They will also provide tree collars and gator bags.
So bring shovels, rakes and pick axes to help us or to come cheer us on! Contact Susan Rebillot, 804-367-4529 to volunteer.
