Today is Arbor Day: White Pine Planting Ceremony at RU in Schaumburg at Noon

RUrbanPioneers Community Garden, the Roosevelt University Sustainability Initiative, and Ghabit invite the community to join us today at noon to plant a 7-foot Eastern White Pine in honor of Arbor Day. We’ll be at the East side of the Building, North of Door #13.

The Eastern White Pine, Pinus Strobus, is known by the Iroquois Haudenosaunee Nation as “Tree of Peace.” Rather apt for Arbor Day in 2013.
