The REED Center has planted 1,750 trees and shrubs so far and 1,100 more will be planted in October towards the 660,000 trees and shrubs that will be planted in the next by the year 2025.
The day will include music and box lunches which are available for purchase from Veggie Annie, an Envision Preferred Business that supports environmental sustainability, including composting, recycling and a hierarchy of local and socially responsible sourcing.
