VOLUNTEERS TO PLANT ORCHARD IN ALIEF COMMUNITY GARDEN

WHAT: Orchard Planting at the Alief Community Garden
WHO: Volunteers from the Alief community, Alief Super Neighborhood and International Management District, and representatives from Dreyer's Fruit Bars
WHEN: Saturday, October 13 at 11:00 a.m.
WHERE: Alief Community Garden, Beechnut at Dairy Ashford
.
Thirty citrus fruit and pecan trees are being presented to the Alief Community Garden and Tree Farm as a result of nearly 28,000 votes from Alief residents in the Dreyer's Fruit Bars Communities Take Root competition.

"I think the best part was that it really was a community effort," said Barbara Quattro, who serves on the International Management District's Community Development Committee and is also the chair of the Alief Super Neighborhood.

"Trees help all of us. For years to come, people will benefit from the fruit of this orchard and it will bear witness to what we've done," Quattro said. Along with the 500 trees in the Alief tree farm, the Dreyer's orchard will play a small part in helping to replenish Houston's green canopy that was devastated in the drought of 2011.

"Anytime you plant a tree is the right time," she said. "And who knows? Maybe people will see us planting trees and be inspired to plant trees at their own homes."
