Meet Mayor Antonio Villagrossa This Saturday at Hazard Park (CD14) for "Million Trees LA" Project
The Mayor will be handing out the first 200 (five gallon) trees for people to take home and be responsible for planting and watering. So although, you may have thought the City was going to plant a million trees, actually, it will be up to a million people in Los Angeles to pick up a tree themself, and be on an "honor system" to plant, water and nuture. So out of four million people in the City, only a million of them (25% of LA residents) have to take it upon themselves to make this project a success. (I guess that's why it's called an "initiative".)
But seriously...if nothing else, if you live in the area of Hazard Park (especially if you have kids), this actually does sounds like a fun, civic event for the community AND a chance to meet the next President of The United States...our very own, Mayor V.
Then, only 999,800 more trees to hand out (assuming 200 people even show up).
