Habitat for Humanity is planting 250 new trees with 300 volunteers in Montgomery County for Earth Day, reports Andrew Kolba for Al Día.

On Earth Day, 250 trees will be planted by Habitat for Humanity volunteers in Norristown, Pottstown and Upper Darby on April 23 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

These are the areas Habitat volunteers will be:

  • Pottstown’s Edgewood Cemetery at 106 Edgewood Street, with plans to plant trees and clean up a historic cemetery near downtown Pottstown;
  • Norristown Farm Park at 2500 Upper Farm Road with plans to plant trees and remove invasive plants in 800+ acre park.
  • Upper Darby’s Bywood community park at 7099 Locust Street with plans to plant 80 trees, landscape, and build a community garden with a children’s garden space and a meditative space on the grounds of “The Church of God in Christ.”

The Earth Day tree-planting effort also includes refreshing Montgomery County gardens and landscaping.

“Habitat is known for building homes for families, but we also build communities… At Rock the Block, neighbors come out to support each other and make their neighborhoods better, greener, and more connected places to live,” said Rebecca R. Cain, the CEO for Habitat for Humanity in Montgomery and Delaware Counties.
