Some 32 trees were planted at Benning Terrace in December and more are coming in the new year thanks to Washington Parks & People.

The trees, which are all native to D.C., were placed on the east side of the community. Washington Parks & People staff, three D.C. Green Corps workforce development trainees, and 50 Fulbright volunteers from across the world planted them.

“It was fun, productive, and educational day,” said a Washington Parks & People representative. “The Benning staff was helpful and the residents seemed appreciative of the efforts.”

The Mission of Washington Parks & People is to grow a city-wide park-based community that promotes health and vitality by nurturing innovation and partnerships. Since they began in 1990, the organization has helped to transform public spaces into living green spaces that serve and invite the community. Two notable parks they have helped to restore are Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park in Northwest and Marvin Gaye Park in Northeast.
