Mulch, Free Trees, and Gardening

Green-Wood has long been known as a green oasis of trees and gardens.

Well, now we are taking it up a notch. So, on April 16, we will be hosting a day devoted to gardening. Free mulch will be available. In cooperation with the New York Restoration Project, and as a part of the MillionTreesNYC, we will have 200 trees to give away for FREE. And, we’ll also be available to answer your gardening questions.

As a lead up to this event, Lisa Alpert, our new and quite remarkable director of development and marketing, had an idea: a contest to name the event. So, she sent out an e-mail blast, and below are some of the very creative responses we’ve gotten. Feel free to add any suggestions in the comments.
