New School Tree Planting

Thank you to everyone who came out to the first tree planting in our Urban Forestry program at the New School for the Arts and Academics in Tempe! We were thrilled to see you all and everyone worked really hard to help get these trees in the ground. We are so grateful to everyone who came and to everyone who worked hard behind the scenes to plan and run this event, including our friends at Global Shapers – Phoenix Hub, Rob Bartelme with the City of Tempe Parks Department, Jane Dowell at the New School, all of our wonderful AZSA volunteers, and many others, without which this event would not have been possible.

Stay tuned for upcoming meetings and events. We will have a team meeting in May to debrief about this event and talk about what’s next. We will be doing some heavy planning and grant writing this summer as we prepare for the next planting season.
