A beautiful day planting trees!

March 10 2019, with over 50 volunteers we planted 168 big trees.

The Cumberland River Compact provided over 250 trees and the equipment as part of the Root Nashville campaign.

Make Time

Planting trees is creating lasting, living memories for yourself, your family and friends.

Our Tree Garden Project

The beginning

Preparing tree garden

Digging and Planting in Tree Garden
Digging and Planting

Young trees are easy to plant. Dig deep enough for the root. Break down the dirt and mix with potting soil.

Awesome!

 

Great exercise and fun. Makes us happy. Don't forget to water. Young Trees need a lot of care in the first year.

Of all the Nashville TN tree planting we have done this year this is the most successful. The trees enjoy the morning sun and are shaded in the afternoon.

There is more

The source of all our products and services is a functioning ecosystem. Our economics only values products and services; whereas the ecosystem is, in fact, more valuable. Without a healthy ecosystem there is no sustainable life. With our knowledge of permaculture, devastated ecosystems such as deserts can be restored.
