Tu B'Shvat Tree Planting
Sun, Jan 23 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join AA, JCAN-Georgia, and GIPL to plant 130 trees in Hammond Park, help sustain our urban forest and celebrate Tu B'Shvat, the Jewish "New Year of Trees". Trees Atlanta has supported annual plantings for Tu B'Shvat for more than two decades. Tu B'Shvat (literally, the 15th day of the lunar month of Shvat) encourages us to connect culture and faith to the land, and to build an awareness of our roles in preventing land degradation.
These trees will provide cleaner air, cool shade, and all around improved habitat for humans and wildlife living in our community. Planting tasks include digging holes with shovels/mattocks, untangling roots with your hands, mulching, watering, and cleaning up your area. Registration is required and spots are limited!
