TreePhilly Forest of Fame Inductree September 2018:
Why she’s tree-mendous:
Gabriella has given away nearly 700 trees through the Community Yard Tree Giveaway Grant program. She engages her neighbors and creates excitement around trees by canvassing door to door and creating mock-up images to show what the community could look like with more trees. She also knows how to host a fabulous tree giveaway, and always includes music, food, face painting and other giveaways to make it special! Gabriella is the Education and Community Development Coordinator at Nueva Esperanza, Inc., and she was just named the SustainPHL 2018 Activist of the Year.
This season, Gabriella will be hosting, not one, but two Community Yard Tree Giveaways in the Hunting Park neighborhood. Find out how to register for a tree in the Hunting Park here! Let’s give it up for Gabriella, tree hero!
