We will be hanging out at the Salem Arts Festival this weekend, Saturday June 8th only, from 11:00AM – 6:00PM. We will be giving away Tuliptree and Scarlet Oak seedlings to help promote awareness of the ongoing effort to obtain Level I arboretum accreditation through for Greenlawn Cemetery. We will also be offering our t-shirts for sale in support of the restoration efforts on the Dickson Memorial Chapel located within the cemetery grounds.
Have you ever taken a walk through Greenlawn and noticed a gorgeous scarlet-leafed oak by the side of the road a short ways past the Orne St gates? Or perhaps you were strolling by Fountain Pond, enjoying the sounds of its namesake fountain, only to look up and wonder why there appeared to be white tulips perched high overhead in a tree? The seedlings we’re handing out tomorrow aren’t just any random tree species – they are actually two of the many different species growing within Greenlawn Cemetery.
Come on down and say hello to us tomorrow (Sat, June 8th) — our table will be located right near the Lobster Shanty on Front St in Salem, MA. It’s going to be a beautiful day and we hope to see you there.
