Arbor Day Open House at the TreeLab!

Published on April 21st, 2017 by Aaron McFarland

TreeLab is excited to announce our grand opening, and on top of that, it happens to be Arbor Day weekend! For those of you wondering “Just what is TreeLab?” this is what we are: to beautify, improve, and inform the City of Richmond through ornamental plant production, planting, and education, with a focus on native species.

During our Arbor Day open house we will have a small quantity of native shrubs and perennials available for a donation that furthers the efforts of TreeLab. We also will have some vegetable plants that we started from seed available for donation in Earth friendly fiber pots (you can plant the whole pot and it will decompose, adding nutrients to the soil for the plants to use)! One more fun little offering will be the ability to “Foster-A-Tree.” Curious as to how fostering a tree works? You’ll have to come and find out for yourself!

We hope to see you there!
