Spring has arrived, what better time to plant a tree(s)?


Reader SoloFloyd (aka Randy to the outside world) wrote to inform me of two upcoming events which are certainly worth a mention. Well, to be exact, its one event and one series of events which kicked off this past weekend.

The first is a 'Tree Block Party' being held on the 200 block of Church St on Saturday, April 12th. The party, which is being hosted by both the residents of Church St as well as the Shade Tree Commission will feature the planting of some 40 trees along both sides of Church as well as an appearance by none other than Smokey the Bear.

The second is a series of events aimed at cleaning Pickering Preserve as well as planting 29 new trees on the property. The first of these events was held last Sunday and they will continue every Sunday throughout the month of April. These events are held from 1-3pm.

With these events in mind, and the hope for more in the future, Randy has started a blog, Phoenixville Environmental Volunteerism Blog, that he intends to use to promote similar activities. He has also agreed to keep the Events section of this site updated with these events. Be sure to check out both places for upcoming events!
