Sharing an upcoming event from the Loudoun Master Gardeners:
Free Garden Lecture – 180 Miles of Trees: The Living Legacy Tree Project
The 2015 Master Gardener Lecture series kicks off the year with Peter Hart, certified tree arborist, speaking about the Journey through Hallowed Ground Living Legacy Tree Planting Project — an ambitious initiative to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War by planting one tree for each of the 620,000 soldiers who died in the war. Peter Hart is a volunteer with the program and is involved in the selection and planting of trees which eventually will create an allee of 180 miles , stretching north to south and over three states.
The free lecture will be held at 7pm on Thursday, January 8th at the Loudoun Extension office (Wells Fargo Bank Building), 30 Catoctin Circle SE, Suite B, Leesburg, VA.
