In summary, I have had two main projects to focus on in the month of October: A fall TreeVitalize planting and the Mulch Madness event. Throughout the month, I have been ELDI’s project lead on planning a TreeVitalize street tree planting that will occur on November 6th. I met with community contacts, school principals, and others to coordinate and plan the logistics for the day. A lot of time went into recruiting volunteers, and also coordinating logistics with our main project partner: Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
My other main project in October was the Mulch Madness event in partnership with Friends of the Pittsburgh Urban Forest. I was ELDI’s project lead on this volunteer-based service event. I coordinated with FPUF on many logistics, recruited the volunteers, and provided the food. We ended up with enough volunteers and they really made a huge improvement along the Blvd!
