The City of Seabrook, Seabrook Rotaract and the Evelyn Meador Library (a branch of the Harris County Public Library) is delighted to announce the addition of an Edible Tree Forest behind the library in Rex Meador Park. The Edible Tree Forest is one part of a multiphase community garden project managed by the library.
Plans for the project began in January and phase 1 of the project was implemented in June with the establishment of the Isabelle Kondradi Memorial Herb Garden.
Phase 2 currently underway consists of a community garden and outdoor learning center sponsored by the Rotary Club of Seabrook. This sponsored space will allow for outdoor learning with a focus on STEM, nature, ecology, wellness and healthy living all which will enhance the educational experience for Seabrook residents.
Phase 3 is the addition of the Edible Tree Forest. In this phase, 10 edible trees will be planted behind the library in between the walking trails at Rex Meador Park. The public is invited to attend the tree planting on Sunday, November 22 at 9:00 a.m. The trees are also open to sponsorship and anyone interested in sponsoring a tree should contact the library by calling (281) 474-9142 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
