An exciting time for neighbors and Lansing residents, TruGreen’s initiative TruNeighbor announced earlier this year their funding of a $20,000 project for the City of Lansing. Handpicked by project leaders, 1845 Osband Ave will receive several fruit trees, which the neighbors are welcome to harvest and eat, perennial bushes, and barrels for the fruit. The Neighborhood Resource Team is focusing on building capacity on the block, as well as partnerships within the neighborhood. Check back in here for more! We are happy to be making progress and spending time with the Osband Orchard neighbors.
