September 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
A tree-planting ceremony will be held on Arbor Day – Friday, Sept. 27th, at the St. George Village Botanical Garden campus. Attendees will meet at the Great Hall area a few minutes before 1 pm.
The ceremony will dedicate a tree to launch the Trees for St. Croix project. Its mission is to grow 6000 trees in the next 6 months for FREE distribution to the public and to educate the public to the importance of having trees in both the home and urban landscape. Following the ceremony tree orders will be accepted for up to 5 free trees to be grown and distributed by the garden in 2020.
The event is made possible by the collaboration of the Community Foundation of Virgin Island and the University of Virgin Islands.
