Tree Tending Tonight – in Carrick

From Carrick tree tender Alice Vaday:

Matt is back and said 5pm is good since it is getting dark early.  Let’s meet at the South Side Cemetary on Monday and then go from there up Brownsville.  If you cannot come until later, don’t worry.  This is to be enjoyable as much as a learning experience while we help beautify our neighborhood.
