Grow a Tree 

Trees Lexington has announced “Lex Grow Trees,” a new collaborative to increase the health and reach of Lexington’s tree canopy. In February, Trees Lexington joined partners from LFUCG and the community to celebrate a shared love of trees and the launch of Lex Grow Trees. Members of the Tree Canopy Ad Hoc Committee, the group driving the Lex Grow Trees campaign, invited attendees and the general public to check out the new website and to learn more about the benefits of trees, the purpose of the initiative, and funding opportunities for tree planting projects. 

Grant applications are being accepted now through April 15, with another funding cycle expected to open in the fall. 






Plant Swap! Join Void Sake for a plant swap party and meet some of your fellow plant lovers in your community. Bring some of your clippings, full plants, seeds, pots, and even garden tools that you’d like to trade and go home with something new. Basic plant education will be covered, like how to repot, propagate, and how to handle those pesky critters that occasionally make a home in our plants.
