Back in the day, well-loved and well-traveled Cherry Ave was lined with cherry trees. Today, many of the trees are gone, replaced by concrete. The Fifeville neighborhood is one of the most diverse and dynamic in the heart of Cville and Elliot Avenue is a major artery in Belmont. This project would link these two vital communities in a ‘roots and wings’ project where we would plant cherry trees down Cherry and Elliott Ave once again and then up the ante by throwing a Cherry Festival every spring when they bloom to celebrate the vitality of the neighborhoods.
Budget – $5000 (Trees, Planting, Event, and Marketing)
