JOT Tree Raffle at FUF Planting

On Saturday, February 10, 2018, Just One Tree joined the Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) planting event in Bernal Heights to table and raffle three Meyer lemon trees. A small but enthused FUF staff was at the helm of the gathering that hosted a large crowd of Bernal Heights homeowners and volunteers congregating in the morning light that filtered through Holly Park’s towering trees. Though not yet as towering in physical stature, both the FUF street trees to be planted in the neighborhood and the the three JOT citrus trees to be taken home by raffle winners were on hand to inspire and excite. After bagels and coffee, but before heading off in teams to get FUF trees in the ground, the raffle paired JOT lemon trees with their new stewards. Stay tuned for updates on those winners and their move toward edible gardening, plus more info on future JOT raffles.
