Tree Planting at Leeds School

As part of a Rotary International focus on protecting the environment, the Northampton Rotary Club worked with the Northampton’s Department of Public Works (DPW), the Urban Forestry Commission, and the non-profit Tree Northampton, to organize a tree planting event at Leeds Elementary School.

Susan Lofthouse, Vice Chair of the Urban Forestry Commission and a key contact for the project, stated, “Thank you to the Northampton Rotary for your interest in protecting the environment through a partnership with the city!  We are thankful for Rotary’s help planting trees at two elementary schools and a residential area in 2022, and are very excited to be working with the club again in 2023.  The tree plantings at Leeds Elementary School will benefit students and staff for decades to come.”
