2nd Plant the Parkways Community Meeting

02/15/2018, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

Playhouse on the Square (66 South Cooper Street) map

Description:

Volunteer Memphis, an action initiative of Leadership Memphis, in partnership with Memphis City Beautiful, is the recipient of a $225,000The Kresge Foundation grant for Plant the Parkways, a project intended to plant up to 1,000 trees along North, South, and East Parkways. 

While the most visible aspect of the grant will be new trees to replenish the existing Parkway System, an equally important part of the grant involves engaging the community in the process in a way that promotes inclusiveness.

Plant the Parkways reached an early milestone Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, when more than a dozen trained volunteers inventoried every tree within the medians of the 11.3-mile Parkway System. Plant the Parkways will focus on the 8.5 miles of Parkway medians.

Join us for our second community meeting to hear updates on the Plant the Parkway plans and learn how you can get involved from Ritchie Smith Associates Landscape Architects, the Memphis City Beautiful and Volunteer Memphis teams.

The meeting will be held at Playhouse on the Square (66 South Cooper Street, Memphis, TN 38104).

Parking: Once you get to Playhouse on the Square, you will see a side street that runs directly on the side of the building called Monroe. Turn onto this street and parking is available on the side of the building OR to your right in the Overton Square parking lot.
