Tree Planting Workshop – Dec 7, 2017

The Ujima Urban Farm will host a tree planting workshop. The workshop is part of the RiverSmart Communities Program, which helps to reduce stormwater runoff that harms the District’s waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. Any planted trees would need to be cared for, especially during the first two years after planting. Individuals who participate in the workshop will learn how to take care of shade trees by reviewing techniques on watering, mulching, weeding and pruning.

The planted trees will improve air quality by removing small pollutant particulates, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by taking up carbon dioxide, provide habitats for beneficial plants and animals and help mitigate the urban heat-island effect by shading homes and streets.

This event is free and open to the public.
