Brightside Butchertown Tree Planting Day

Help beautify Butchertown this weekend by planting a few trees with Brightside, which has been donor funded and volunteer-driven since 1986. The goal is to plant about 30 trees along East Washington and Buchanan streets (not only improving the look of the neighborhood but improving the air quality, reducing the urban heat-island effect, lowering energy costs and helping to control storm-water runoff). It’s a little act with a big impact, and in addition to the warm fuzzy feeling you get, Butchertown Pie Co. will be giving out hand-held pies and Butchertown sodas.
