Today is the first day of the tree planting season for our new tree planting crew. The crew is comprised of ex-cons who, over the next eight weeks, will learn how to properly plant, mulch and maintain trees. They will also get training in rain garden planting and general landscaping. Once the season is over, these men will have gained valuable job skills and made a very nice sum of money!
The NJ Tree Foundation is branching out in Camden! Recently, a litter-infested vacant lot in Camden, NJ was cleaned and greened by local residents.
With funding from Impact100 and the William Penn Foundation, we are planting trees to green streets, and shrubs and perennials to create safe havens for Camden residents.
