Trees for Sacred Places in Howard County and the Eastern Shore

TFSP_HoCo-ES_TTT.jpgIn September 2017, 11 congregations participated in IPC’s Trees for Sacred Places training of trainers’ workshop co-led with our technical partners, the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and Midshore River Conservancy (now ShoreRivers). Each participating congregation sent 2 volunteers to be trained on how to return to their congregations and deliver an environmental stewardship workshop.  The volunteers went on to deliver workshops to members of their congregations and followed this with tree planting days on their properties.  In total, the congregations have planted 115 trees and engaged an additional 177 volunteers in the workshops and planting days.
