The Greenspace Initiatives Committee would like to thank our community for the great turnout and support of Green Fest 2021 on Saturday, December 4. We were able to share conceptional plans for Mermaid Park, collect feedback on Winston Park, highlight our work with Friends of Pastorius Park, and green work with neighbors at the Water Tower and West Highland Train Station. Attendees enjoyed music, raffles, meeting many stewards of Chestnut Hill's green spaces, and the first public outing of The Backyard Gnomes who will be highlighting our greenspace work in 2022. We raised close to $460 and kicked off our 2021-2022 fundraising campaign. This collaboration of the Business Association, Conservancy and Community Association among other green stakeholders is really amazing and we are so appreciative of everyone's excitement for our newest projects - Mermaid Park and Winston Park. We encourage you to visit chestnuthill.org to make a donation to the Chestnut Hill Tree Fund this holiday season.
Thank you also to our generous donors: Night Kitchen Bakery, Chestnut Hill Starbucks, Hilltop Books / Friends of Chestnut Hill Library, Weavers Way, Tavern on the Hill, Spruce Hollow Landscape Design, Chef Kimberly Fonville, Woodmere Art Museum, Chestnut Hill Conservancy, Chestnut Hill Business District, Chestnut Hill Parking Foundation, Chestnut Hill Community Association and the Chestnut Hill Local.
