From the Sunset District Safety Network comes some pretty cool news:
Free Trees and HUGE Tree Planting Event Coming to the Sunset
As you may know, Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) are always working hard to secure funding that will enable us to further subsidize the planting and maintenance of street trees for residents in the Sunset. FUF is delighted to say that Timberland has awarded us a major grant that will make this possible. Trees will be FREE for residents.
On Saturday, October 18, FUF is planning to manage a 100+ tree planting, from 19th Avenue to the Great Highway, while coordinating simultaneous park and beach clean-up efforts. We need to engage 400 to 500 volunteers throughout the Sunset to meet these goals. To ensure success, we need all Sunset residents to take part in this neighborhood event. Please contact Suzanne@fuf.net or 561-6890 x101 for more information.
There is a great way for Sunset residents, groups, and organizations to beautify our neighborhood for FREE. All we need to do is provide our time and energy. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
