It's summer time! What does that mean for planting trees?

It's a sizzling summer here in Gainesville! 

But even the heat couldn't stop us from planting trees. We partnered up with our friends at Fracture and, with your support, were able to plant 1,000 trees on June 17. 

Though we won't be planting any more trees this summer, we can't wait for it to cool down so we can plant even more this fall, when the trees have the best survival rate. 

Until then, we are strategizing how we can plant the most trees to date and have the best planting season yet!

Please continue to support our project so this fall will be as successful as the last.

Thanks again for your contributions and well wishes, it truly makes all the difference.

Best,

Danielle

Dear beloved donors,

Because of your support, we successfully planted 4,900 trees from December 2016-February 2017. We will be planting again when the weather cools down later this year.

A huge thanks to:

•Alachua Conservation Trust for providing/managing the land.

•Changeville, Sun Power Lawn Care, Green Clean Homes, and the University of Florida Neutral UF Coalition for supplying the volunteers.

•Dragonfly Sushi and Sake Company for being a sponsor.

•Keep Alachua County Beautiful for supporting the purchase of trees.

and

•YOU for supporting us with funds.

We are working towards turning these trees into calculated carbon offsets to further support our community of carbon neutral businesses, and we couldn't do it without you.

Cheers to a beauiful spring and a healthier planet.
