The City will seed and nurture 500 trees over the next three years using funding from a $233,244 grant received from the Southeast Sustainable Communities Fund. Followed by, Loop it Up Savannah, a grassroots arts organization, that has partnered with the City and contributed artistic elements to the neighborhood tree nurseries.
The Gwinnett Street site is the first of three nurseries the apprentices plan to build and maintain. The others sites are located on Augusta Avenue in the City’s 1st Aldermanic District and on Mills B. Lane Boulevard in the City’s 5th Aldermanic District.
