In the fall of 2017 Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful and the ACC Community Tree Council (CTC) received a Keep America Beautiful/UPS grant to fund the planting of trees in the Athens Housing Authority (AHA) Rocksprings neighborhood. In collaboration with the ACC Landscape Management Division, AHA staff, and the UGA College of Environmental Design, plans were created to plant shade and fruit trees at the site to improve the usability of the community space and offer a sustainable food source for low-income residents. The collaborative project is also an opportunity to teach residents and volunteers about proper tree installation, maintenance, and the economics and environmental value of tree canopy.
The Rocksprings Tree Planting Project will take place on February 16th from 10-4pm at the Rocksprings Community Center and serve as the centerpiece of our local Arbor Day celebration with volunteer opportunities and the reading of the Tree City USA Proclamation.
