Arbor Day Eco Crawl
We are so excited to celebrate trees with the inaugural Arbor Day Eco Crawl. This is a free, family friendly event that will take place on January 17, 2020, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Businesses in Downtown New Port Richey will have eco-friendly giveaways, such as native Blanket Flowers, reuseable straws, totes and bamboo silverware. We are handing out one, free tree per household - one gallon Dwarf Simpson's Stopper and Walters Viburnum "Withlacoochee".
Trees play such an important role. They remove CO2 and pollutants therefore reducing the “heat island effect”. They also preserve soil by decreasing storm water run-off, and provide shade and shelter for many animals. We will have an arborist and staff from Florida Forest Service available to answer any tree questions you may have - including what type of trees should be planted in your yard.
To take part in this exciting event, please check-in at Ordinance One, located at 5738 Main Street in New Port Richey. From there, you'll receive information about what giveaways are available at participating locations. Eco-friendly items will be given away while supplies last.
Kerry Courtney will be playing at Ordinance One during the event. He is a singer songwriter from St Petersburg, Florida who started a band at the young age of 11. Since then, he has shared the stage with international acts such as Switchfoot, Vance Joy, X Ambassadors, Meg Myers, The Mouglis, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc, and was even on the last season of American Idol, where he was given a 6 minute TV feature making it to Hollywood. Touring across Europe, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and America, Kerry touches the heart of the listener with his beautifully honest lyrics, and haunting voice. Since taking a step back from his long running band, Goodnight Neverland, Kerry has pursued his own musical journey under his own name. Take a listen to his music if you haven't already and become a fan.
Thanks to our participating locations: Ordinance One, Pete's Grand Central, Wright's Natural Market, and Cotee River Brewing.
