Sign up for TWIG's team on ReLeafing Day at Gra-Mar Middle Prep School:
Saturday November 23, 8:30am - 12:00pm
Join the Nashville Tree Foundation for an annual, family friendly, tree planting event that takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving. Trees provide shade, help to filter air pollution, create an oxygen rich environment, and reduce flooding by absorbing great amounts of ground water. Learn how to plant and care for trees, while also joining forces to make Nashville a greener community! ReLeafing Day is hosted with support from Nashville Electric Service, Metro Beautification, Metro Tree Advisory Committee, Metro Nashville Public Schools, Cumberland River Compact and neighborhood groups.
