This week, we have been very busy investigating potential sites and talking to potential partners on future tree plantings. In Guadalupe, we visited a potential site in an apartment home community and will be contacting the owners to see if they are interested. In Apache Junction, we have found a group that might be interested in partnering with us on a planting and we are setting up a meeting with them. And in Tempe, we delivered some tree watering information to the North Tempe Neighborhood Association to enable them to have conversations with their residents to gauge interest for a tree planting there.

In other news, we continue to look for more grants for both our tree plantings and our ALPHA Nursery project. Stay tuned for details on our July meeting.
