Castle Street

2019 Greenspace Report

The corner of Castle and Monroe Streets is a sunny spot in the Fair Haven neighborhood, that, after this summer, is new home to two cherry trees and a serviceberry tree. Early on Saturday mornings — with an eye to beating the heat — neighbors gathered to plant, prune, and supplement verdant tree crowns with showy, pollinator-friendly flowers around each tree.
