City of Lauderhill’s Vice Mayor Ken Thurston Vows to replant after hurricane Irma and announces the commencement of the 2017-18 Green Series
Vice Mayor Ken Thurston is proud to announce the Kick-Off of the 7th Annual Green Series! The first class of the series will be led by David Harold on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 6 pm. His subject matter will include Tropical Fruit Trees, and everyone is welcome to attend!
Loss trees during Irma
“I would say the timeliness of the Tropical Fruit Tree Class is on point. So many of us lost trees during Hurricane Irma; if you are a beginner or a long time veteran in your yard, you should come out and hear what David has to share with us. In addition, you have a shot at winning a free fruit tree or a free plant,” says Green Series Organizer, Vice Mayor Thurston.
The class will be held in the Multipurpose Room of Lauderhill’s City Hall – 5581 W. Oakland Park Boulevard, and it is free to attendees on a first come first serve basis.
Refreshments will be served, and fruit trees will be raffled off to attendees.
Vice Mayor Ken Thurston began the Green Series during his first year as a City of Lauderhill elected official. Since then, he has worked with Waste Pro, the City’s recycling provider, to help underwrite the costs associated with the series.
The Green Series includes classes that help residents with planting gardens, maintaining lawns, growing lawns, plants and trees, selecting edible gardens for your home/condo, and general irrigation techniques.
