Earlier this month, we began our first Tree Giveaway of the season with the Durham Neighbor's Free Lunch Initiative. The Durham Neighbor's Free Lunch Initiative (a partnership between local farms and Geer Street Garden) started in March to provide Durham Public Schools students and families with lunch on weekdays after the closing of schools. This initiative not only benefits students and families -- local farms no longer had to waste their produce and Geer Street Garden could re-hire some of their employees! They have provided 200 meals a day, 5 days a week for 8 months. TreesDurham gave away 50 trees (maple and crabapple) along with the lunches served on Friday, October 2nd.
We encourage you to donate to the Durham Neighbor's Free Lunch Initiative so they can continue serving our community with the genius partnership!
