Press Reslease from Friends Of Edgewood Park:
The Friends of Edgewood Park invite you to participate in a media & public event launching our campaign for soliciting online votes for a Fruit Tree Orchard Grant that we have applied for, from the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, (FTPF). The grant will provide us with fruit trees, resources and expertise assistance needed to re-introduce about 45 fruit bearing trees, (plus assorted fruit bearing shrubs), in Edgewood Park. The online voting period will extend from April 15 to August 31. We are excited to have made the 100 finalists, (out of about 425 participants worldwide). As such, we are competing for the top 20 votes gatherers applicants, (out of 100 finalists), who will be receiving fruit tree orchards from the FTPF foundation. 

To further our excitement, The City of New Haven department or Parks, Recreation & Trees has offered its full support behind this initiative by matching this grant with an equal numbers of fruits trees that will be introduced in various neighborhood within the city, (outside Edgewood Park). In so doing, The Department has just rendered this initiative one that is of interest and stand to benefit the various communities and neighborhoods across the entire city of New Haven.
