Project Tree


Project Tree

A longtime dream of Eric Kos of the Alameda Sun is came true this year. The Alameda Sun has funded a tree-planting effort here in Alameda, donating $1,000 to Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) in 2016 to fund a tree-planting effort hereby dubbed “Project Tree.”

Fruit tree recipients were required to:

  1. Live in the City of Alameda
  2. Have an adequate space for the tree planted in the ground (not container)
  3. Live in the home where the tree would be planted
  4. Attend an orientation on the proper care of their tree
  5. Care for the tree

The first recipients just attended their Project Tree orientation on Oct. 8 at Ploughshares. This orientation, given by project coordinator Marla Koss, was specifically for those receiving fig or citrus trees. Orientation sessions for other fruit trees (apple, stone fruit, etc.) will be given early in 2017.
