By finding homes for trees in the tornado-torn neighborhood of Stanford Estates, Jackie combined two of her passions: being a good steward of the environment, and her love of her hometown.
Congratulations to Ascension Saint Thomas for the August 6 virtual groundbreaking for two new buildings: the Ascension Saint Thomas Rehabilitation Hospital and Ascension Saint Thomas
For the past year, the Root Nashville campaign has been fortunate to work with AmeriCorps service member Dylan Vines. Dylan reflected on his year of service through the perspective of (naturally!) a growing tree. Thank you, Dylan, for the many ways that you have helped Root Nashville grow.
It’s been an unexpected year so far, to say the very least. For the Root Nashville campaign, and for neighbors affected by the tornado, one of these surprises actually came as a bright spot of positivity.
Today on World Environment Day, remember that humans, too, are part of the environment.
Where does Root Nashville get our trees? We work with experts in the field. Read about our friend and partner Bryan Shelton of Tennessee Tree and Shrub in this Q&A.
After the recent tornado devastated his neighborhood, one east Nashville resident decided to put his own expertise to work by leading a replanting effort.
Need some good news? The city has achieved a major planting milestone!
Spring has officially sprung, so what can you do to celebrate? There are plenty of safe (and fun) outdoor activities within your own yard or neighborhood street – like tree identification.
With grant funding support from Metro Public Health Department, the affordable housing nonprofit Be a Helping Hand and Root Nashville are partnering to launch a new planting initiative in North Nashville on BHH properties.
