Seeds to Soil partnered with the Fredrick Douglass Boulevard Business Alliance to manage the care of street trees. Soil has been managed, bulbs planted and funding for tree pit guards has begun. NYC Parks, New Yorkers for Parks and Partnerships for Parks provided resources for the project such as bulbs, tools and mulch.
Tree Love - Bulbs were planted along Fredrick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem. These two tree gardens are located next to each other. The images were shot on the same day. One has a tree guard and mulch and the other does not. This is the outcome. To improve our neighborhood air quality, we need tree garden guards and we need to amend and protect the soil with compost and mulch, only then can our plants survive.
Seeds to Soil partnered with the Fredrick Douglass Boulevard Alliance to manage the care of street trees by organizing and producing mulch and bulb planting events along the boulevard with material support from NYC Parks, New Yorkers for Parks and Partnerships for Parks.
