On Saturday, August 29th we opened our doors to the community for the 2015 EverGreen EverBlue Event benefitting the Western Reserve Land Conservancy in their effort to reforest our City. Cleveland was once referred to as "The Forest City", but over the years it's tree canopy has slimmed to 18.9%. Over the next 5 years, The Land Conservancy's Thriving Communities Institute and its partners will be planting and maintaining 10,000 trees throughout the city's 36 neighborhoods. We were thrilled to have the opportunity the host the the annual event and to all who attended Saturday night - Thanks for coming by! We had an amazing time and we hope you did too!
SET-UP // DAY 1 OF 2
As vendors and volunteers arrived and preparations for the EverGreen Everblue event are full steam ahead - Something was in the air at Rustbelt Reclamation. Just like any other day, designers were designing, craftsmen were crafting and shipments were being dispatched, but something was different. May be anticipation mixed with a sense of shared purpose. Whatever it was - The Rustbelt and Western Land Conservancy Teams, along with volunteers and vendors joined together in an effort to make the 2015 EverGreen EverBlue Event a memorable one.
