The Bigelow PTO has sponsored 3 trees as part of Green Newton’s 4C Tree Project, which aims to honor the memory of lives lost to COVID-19 by celebrating life through the planting of trees in public spaces in Newton.
Thanks to the contribution of hundreds of donors, including several PTOs, the City was able to order 170 trees and has started planting. A tree memorial dedication ceremony is scheduled at 2pm on Saturday, May 1 in front of the Mason Rice School (149 Pleasant Street, Newton Centre). Arrive at 1:15pm if you want to help planting :-).
Spearheaded by Green Newton’s Environmental Youth Leadership Program, the Capture Carbon Commemorate COVID-19 Tree Project (4C Tree Project) hopes to demonstrate the resilience of our City through difficult times and its commitment to a healthy ecosystem.
