Trees Atlanta Kicks Off Planting Season
With another successful planting season in the rear view mirror, Trees Atlanta is enthusiastic to begin the new planting season in September. To celebrate, Trees Atlanta has announced details for two kick-off fundraisers.
Trees Atlanta is hosting “Tailgate for Trees”, on Friday, September 12, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center, 225 Chester Ave SE, Atlanta, GA, 30316. At the event, you will find your favorite tailgating activities, catering by Ibiza Bites, and a spirited silent auction featuring rare and unusual plants and trees. The auction will also feature incredible woodcrafts and art pieces by your favorite local artists. Tickets are $50 for individuals.
The nationally known non-profit is relocating The 15th Annual Trees Atlanta Tree Sale & Jamboree to a new location: the Freedom Farmers’ Market at The Carter Center, located at 453 Freedom Parkway NE, Atlanta, GA 30307. Each October, Trees Atlanta offers more than 1,500 native and exotic plants – including 200 species of trees, shrubs, native perennials, and tree-safe vines – for purchase by the public. The fundraiser will take place, rain or shine, on Saturday, October 4th, 2014 from 8 AM to 2 PM. Trees Atlanta donors of $500 or more are invited to attend a preview shopping night the evening before the sale. If a shopper wants a big tree but has a small car, Trees Atlanta can provide delivery, as well as planting assistance, within a limited area for a small fee.
All proceeds from both events benefit Trees Atlanta’s planting and education programs, helping our community plant approximately 6,000 trees and seedlings each year and provided educational sessions attended by more than 8,000 adults and children all around metro Atlanta. All of this was made possible by the support of people like you.
