Thanks to volunteers, including from Granger Community Church, over 100 trees were recently planted at Harris Township Park.
The trees, mostly saplings, were obtained from the Soil and Water Conservation District of St. Joseph County.
Walnut trees now border the southern end of the park, along the Indiana Toll Road.
A variety of fruit trees were planted along the western edge of the park, along Gast Ditch and near the bluebird boxes that were installed earlier in the year.
Thanks to all those who helped. If you’re interested in planting trees, we’ll do it again so let us know you’d like to help – then plan on driving by with a loved one in 20 years to show off the much taller results your work!
