Volunteers needed for tree planting extravaganza!

Columbia Heights Village Together with Casey Trees Washington, DC is sponsoring a Neighborhood Tree Planting on March 20 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Casey Trees is providing the trees, tools, gloves and technical advisors.   CHVT is recruiting the volunteers (dressed in gardening clothes and ready to get dirty) to plant 30 trees on the grounds of the Columbia Heights Village Apartments.   Adults and kids are welcome -- and about 40 are needed for this ambitious greening project.   Volunteers will be fed and watered just like the trees!   Bagels and coffee at the beginning and pizza at the end.   The check-in/organizational site is the southeast corner of 14th Street and Columbia Road.   Harvard Street may be blocked off due to a marathon that is being run that same morning, so you might want to take the metro (Green or Yellow Line, Columbia Heights stop).   The planting will happen regardless of weather.
