The “Green” at the SALT Block will be hosting the ninth annual “Growing a Green Future” event on Saturday, April 21, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day with family-friendly activities and learn about what it means to “be green” in Catawba County during the annual Growing a Green Future Earth Day/Arbor Day Celebration.  The rain date for this event is Sunday, April 22, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 20 civic, conservation, art and science organizations will be represented at “Growing a Green Future.”  These groups will be providing educational information, and demonstrations, focusing on preserving the earth, supporting nature, or any environmental product, practice, or service, offered in the area.  Some of those groups include the City of Hickory’s Community Appearance Commission (CAC), GoGreen Hickory, Hickory Museum of Art, Republic Services, Riverkeepers/Covekeepers, and Shaklee. 

Many organizations come together to bring this event to the community, including the City of Hickory, Catawba County, Catawba Science Center, Greenway Public Transportation, Keep Catawba County Beautiful, Hickory Museum of Art, Republic Services, and the Western Piedmont Council of Governments.

The City’s CAC and Landscape Services, a division of Public Services, will be handing out tree seedlings again this year.  The community is encouraged to stop by the City of Hickory’s booth to pick up a free tree seedling to plant. 

Air quality improvement and the reduction of carbon in the atmosphere is a benefit of trees.  Also, a healthy mature tree will increase property value and the larger the tree the higher the value. This is especially important for resale and will increase yearly as the tree grows.  All of these reasons should be an incentive to plant trees.  By keeping mature trees healthy by proper pruning, and not topping trees, not only will it increase the value of a property and save money on energy costs, but, it, also, helps provide a benefit of cleaner air and reductions in storm water problems.
