Friends, we’ve just learned that the liability and maintenance issues with the State have been resolved and our project is a GO! Our thanks to Rep. Phil Hinkle and Sen. Mike Delph for pulling some strings on our behalf.
Our new planting date is Saturday, November 17, 9:00 a.m. to noon.
We hoped for cooler weather, and we’re certain to have it then! Get out your long underwear and fleece jackets, and prepare to join us for an adventure in planting. We count on many hands to make light work of installing 100 native trees and shrubs that will enhance the gateway to our neighborhoods.
Please watch your email for a bulletin from Sarah Grain of Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Inc. Sarah is asking you to sign up with her so she can track how many additional volunteers to recruit from outside Traders Point.
To meet our commitments to INDOT, you will be asked to sign a waiver of liability to participate in planting on State property.
Though the planting date and some process details have changed, our aim of surrounding the INDOT facility with a pleasing landscape remains the same. When Sarah Grain emails you, please say yes to joining us on planting day.
Thank you for your continuing support.
