Organized by: Ash Draper

EVENT DATE May 21, 2016

THE STORY:

Our dear friend, Meg Sillivan, passed away last year. She enjoyed getting her hands in the dirt at our school farm between classes. Leaving with bounty and making some of the most delicious dishes. A ray of light in our lives. We want to honor her by gathering and planting a tree at the farm at Yale School of Nursing. We will need to dig a big hole, and will do so with good tunes, cold beer, and tasty snacks- in true Meg fashion. Saturday May 21st at 3pm.

The chosen tree is an American Persimmon — they are unique, incredibly beautiful (holding their orb shaped, bright fruit even after all of the tree’s leaves have fallen), well-suited to this climate (and therefore very likely to persist), and produce a tangible, delicious fruit in the fall that could double as a moment of community harvest and gathering. As so perfectly described by Justin Freiberg, Director of the Yale Landscape Lab.

Please join us in planting and if you can- help us reach our goal! Any funds leftover from this will be added to the Meghan M. Sullivan Scholarship Fund in Meg's hometown.
