News from NAC: Three Days in Paradise
The spring and early summer have seen a flurry of exciting events at Paradise at Parkside in Washington DC's Ward 7. Read on for more details!
In early June, three ceremonial cherry trees were donated to Paradise through a partnership between the National Cherry Blossom Festival and Casey Trees. These trees join the 25 already donated by Casey Trees: the urban orchard surrounding the Paradise Peace Garden (featuring edible varieties like pawpaw, sweet cherry, and plum) and the willow oaks and red maples to provide shade in DC summers will eventually form a canopy to complement the growth and vibrancy of Paradise at Parkside.
The next step: a Farmers’ Council to envision and realize the long-term sustainability of the Paradise Peace Garden!
