The Hawthorne Shade Tree was pleased to have been awarded this year's Dig In! COVID-19 Safety Grant.  Shade Tree Commissioner Al Ianacone submitted the application this past summer during the annual application process.  City Green supports keeping our community gardens safe during these times.  It is fundamental that Dig In! Community Gardens uphold the best safety practices, so together we can continue increasing access to healthy food, supporting local wildlife, beautifying neighborhoods and enhancing communities.  Special thanks to Rayna Laiosa, Council and Community Garden founder for working with Al on this important initiative.
