TURNING OVER NEW LEAVES IN MONTICELLO

Volunteers Needed to Help Care for Replaced Trees on Broadway

September 15, 2014

MONTICELLO – Sixteen new trees will be planted on Broadway this fall as part of ongoing beautification in the Village of Monticello.  Tom Manza of Manza Family Farm in Montgomery is donating the trees, which will replace those damaged by the harsh winter.

Work is scheduled to begin after Monday, September 15.  The Village of Monticello Department of Public Works (DPW) will lift the tree grates, remove the dead trees and replace the soil in preparation for planting.

“Having healthy, beautiful trees is an important part of community beautification,” said Walter Fedun, Interim Village Manager, “We are grateful for the role of Manza Family Farm and Sullivan Renaissance in keeping Broadway beautiful.”

Installation is set for the week of October 13 as a joint effort between Manza Family Farm and the Village of Monticello DPW, with assistance from Sullivan Renaissance.  DPW will also provide necessary machinery, reinstall the tree grates and mulch the new trees.  

After the planting is complete, volunteers will be needed to assist with watering and basic care. Volunteers have been playing an important role in the beautification of Monticello since NYS Department of Transportation completed its major renovation project on Broadway in 2011. 

“It has been the work of volunteers, both village residents and others concerned about the County Seat, who have created and cared for gardens, parks and other public spaces in the village for the last several years,” said Vivian Multari-Ginsberg, Sullivan Renaissance Horticultural Community Liaison, “We could use additional volunteers to help on this project and year round.”

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation, and WSUL/WVOS.
