Henderson Avenue Tree Planting and Wrigley Garden Mural Unveiling
2010-11-17 · By Editor
Wrigley is Going Green, a grass roots neighborhood environmental organization devoted to saving and planting trees in Long Beach, was awarded a Neighborhood Partners Program grant to plant 60 trees in the area immediately surrounding the Wrigley Garden and create a mural by our very own local artist, Lisa Wibroe, to go in the thriving community garden. The trees will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood which has been seeing vast improvement since the Wrigley Garden, moved into the plot of land where two drug houses were torn down. Where once there was blight, now there is beauty.
On Saturday, November 20th at 9:00 a.m. at the Wrigley Garden, 1950 Henderson Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90806, please join us and volunteer along with Councilmember Dee Andrews of the 6th District, for the unveiling of the garden mural and planting of the 60 trees. All volunteers will be entered into a raffle to win four turkey dinners, just in time for Thanksgiving, provided by the Wrigley Albertsons on Willow Street. Shovels and gloves will be provided. Students who volunteer will receive credit for community service hours.
Many local businesses are supporting this event: Albertsons, El Paisano Market, Northgate Supermarket, Shortnin Bread, Starbucks, and Walgreens. More will be joining soon!
