Join us in a town-wide collaboration to make Willimantic greener, healthier, and more beautiful. Our goal is to work as a community to plant trees and shrubs native to our area to provide bio-habitat, cleaner air, and cooling shade for parks, school playgrounds, and city streets. Everyone is invited to participate-church groups, schools, sports groups, youth groups, civic clubs and fraternal organizations, social services, non-profits, college groups, and all residents young and old.
A good quality shrub can cost $50. a 3-5 year old tree of visible size (5-7') can be $150. The total cost of the project is estimated at $15,000 with volunteer help planting. Any donation of any size is tax deductible and you can send to The Garden Club of Windham, Box 773, Willimantic, CT 06226. Your name will be included in a Planting Registry
This project has the support of the Town Council's 325 Committee, Public Works, the Garden Club, The Windham Recreation Dept.
