ORGANIC CHERRY TREE PROJECT
Spring 2015: the ECCO Board supported the planting of 50 organic cherry trees throughout the neighborhood. Neighbors contributed a $10 copay for each tree. ECCO offered an educational program on how to manage cherry trees without pesticides, and provided advice on planting. As our trees grow, we hope to start an annual, fall Cherry Festival.
Summer 2013: East Calhoun partnered with local non-profit Metro Blooms on a project to plant 15 raingardens on private properties throughout the neighborhood.
