Rooted in 12th South
Organized by: William Smallman
EVENT DATE Feb 28, 2015
Rooted in 12th South is a street-by-street approach to planting trees and beautifying the 12th South Neighborhood. We started on Paris Ave (70 trees in spring 2014) and Halcyon Ave (30 trees in spring 2015) and we plan to take on a new street each spring and fall. We will be laying downd roots on Montrose Ave this spring. Everybody wants trees, but not everybody can afford them. By using crowd funding, I'm hoping the all 12th South neighbors can chip in small amounts each year and work together to add more beauty to our already vibrant neighborhood.
We need any donations you can give to help reach our funding goal. We are hoping to plant 50 trees on Montrose Ave. Each tree costs $100 (including planting), therefore, we need to raise at least $5,000 to complete the project. Patrons at Play and Urban Nashville Real Estate have started off the fudraising with very genoerous donations, and the hope is that neighbor support will fund the rest. During the Paris Ave project, we had donations as small as $10 and as large as $3,000.
Planting will start planting in March.
Let's lay down some roots!!
