At a one-of-a-kind event, Friends of Norfolk’s Environment and the City of Norfolk are offering up 450 fruit and nut trees for free to Norfolk residents.
The event, Jam’n Jamz, takes place Saturday, January 14, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Ernie Morgan Center (3500-a Granby Street, 23504).
Tree species include varieties of apple, pear, plum, fig, Pawpaw, peach, and more.
Adoptees can also take advantage tree planting and care instruction, learn about rain barrels, chat with Norfolk Beekeepers, and watch jam-making demonstrations (tasting included!).
The tree giveaway is part of a larger effort to increase Norfolk’s tree canopy. Last year’s event was overwhelmingly popular; those interested in adopting are encouraged to arrive early.
