Recycle Christmas Trees, Wreaths for Farm Project

From EcoRINews good article on recycling your Christmas Trees and Wreaths:

The story: By ecoRI News staff

"Bring us your Christmas tree Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers' Market from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
PAWTUCKET — Christmas tree or holiday tree, the name doesn’t matter. New Urban Farmers and ecoRI News will take your withering evergreen trees and wreaths for use as mulch in an urban garden.

Drop off your unneeded trees and wreaths at the Jan. 7 Wintertime Farmers’ Market, outside of Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main St., from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Your old evergreens will be used for soil remediation for innovative agricultural projects going on right here in Pawtucket. New Urban Farmers is a community growing and garden project for inner-city families living in the Galego Court public housing facility.

For more information, call New Urban farmer Bleu Grijalva at 401-338-8163, or ecoRI News staffer Tim Faulkner at 401-330-6276."
