For at least 6 years the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association has been trying to re-do Desmare Park on Esplanade next to Cabrini, including capping its contaminated soil. Well- it’s finally happened, and now it’s time to plant trees.
The great news is that the holes are already dug! We need about 20 volunteers to help us plant eleven 30-gallon trees. As usual we will begin at 10am. We will also mulch the trees. Sign up below!
P.S. You may be wondering why in the world we’re planting in May. Good question! This is the only time that the neighborhood association can plant. The good news is that SOUL will be maintaining the trees, so they’re in good hands.
