2008 Hooper Ridge

With help from Ronnie Edwards, Metro Councilwoman-elect of District 5 and executive director of Urban Restoration Enhancement Corporation (UREC), the final NeighborWoods planting of 2008 in Hooper Ridge subdivision took place on December 13th.  There were very few trees in this newer neighborhood of affordable homes, Baton Rouge Green volunteers and the neighborhood residents planted over 50 making an immediate and positive aesthetic and environmental impact on the area.

An empty lot at the neighborhood’s entrance was richly planted with a diverse selection of trees; this space will be a park-like place for residents to gather and recreate.
