Tree Sapling Giveaways
We are giving away free redbud tree saplings at each planting event. Look for our table at each meeting location to receive your free tree. We will also be giving away free redbud tree saplings at the first Citiparks Farmers Market in Market Square on May 11 at 10 a.m. Once you get home, you should plant your tree immediately.
