Many neighbors and volunteers from far and wide came out with their children to plant trees in Desmare Playground at 3456 Esplanade Avenue on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 10 a.m. until noon.
From Susannah Burley:
“Thank you so much for your time and energy this morning in planting 11 beautiful trees that will drink a whole lot of stormwater, provide shade for the playground, and clean our air, soil and water. Thanks also to Wiley & Tommy Lewis for funding the trees, Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association for their leadership and partnership, Dana Brown and Associates for their design, John Benton of Bayou Tree Service for advising, Benton Tree Service for donating the mulch, and YOU for planting the trees!”
