FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — BEDFORD HILLS, NY–The Greenburgh Nature Center is in the process of bringing back the orchard, thanks to SavATree, which donated their time, services and expertise for the initial phase of this project. At one time, our property was acres of farmland with an orchard. Today, only three fruit trees remain and much of the area was overtaken by invasive trees and vines.
Everyday, the Nature Center is strengthening vital connections to the Earth. With the tremendous help of our sponsors and volunteers, we are reclaiming and restoring vital and historic areas of our property. In doing so, we are creating living, breathing, growing ‘classrooms’ where visitors and school groups can fully understand and appreciate the importance of healthy habitats and healthy habits.
SavATree has become a valued partner to the Greenburgh Nature Center. In addition to donating over $3,500 in man hours and equipment for the orchard revitalization, they have committed to plant trees in the orchard when the grounds are ready for planting. In addition, SavATree will be on hand at the Nature Center’s annual Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 22, to do a tree planting demonstration and lead a discussion on root collar disorders. They will also have a featured activity at our Fall Festival on October 21, offering rides on their zipline.
We are working on a fully developed plan to re-plant the orchard. Fruit tree purchases and naming opportunities for the public will be available in the future. We know that together we are making a great green future!
