Sustaining Our Urban Landscape | SOUL

BLOCK CAPTAIN TRAINING – JULY 18

Would YOU like to see more trees in your community? Then join us at a 1.5 hour block captain training and see if you’re ready to enlist your neighbors to sign up for trees!

Trainings are 1.5 hours on weekday evenings (and they involve bottles of wine). We’ll teach you about our strategy for replanting New Orleans, the different tree species that we offer and what conditions they thrive in, best practices for talking to your neighbors, and how we permit every tree through the city. Next meeting: Wednesday, July 18 – 6-7:30pm at 300 N. Broad St. (same building as Whole Foods) 2nd floor in ReFresh Community Room.
