Green thumbs, Tree Huggers, Earth kids, no matter which name you choose Camden Atlanta lived up to it this past weekend by partnering with local non-profit organization and sustainability guardian, Trees Atlanta. Camden Atlanta joined forces with the organization to plant 350 1 gallon containers of wildflowers and native grasses in the very quaint neighborhood of Ormewood located just minutes from Camden’s downtown Atlanta community, Camden Vantage. After a brief team rally at Camden Vantage I led a caravan over to the planting site to begin the day.
Upon arrival we were met by Brian Williams, Trees Atlanta Forrest Restoration Coordinator who gave us the skinny on making our efforts count. We broke into teams, gathered our shovels and work gloves and set out to get the big job done.
While some of our Camdenites squealed and squirmed at the site of a little old earth-worm (I won’t name, names but you can click here to find out who) our other Camdenites, such as our fearless leader , Marina Blixt and Camden St. Clair Community Manager Mary Ella Smith, were moving so fast we ended up extending the planting parameters for the day thanks to their green thumb expertise.
It wouldn’t be Camden if we didn’t bring water and snacks for the group and even make new friends.
After all of our hard work, we felt so proud to be a part of such a great project, we celebrated with a #selfie!
I am so proud to be a part of our Atlanta team. Great job team Atlanta, helping connect the environmental dots this weekend.
