Summary

This was the eighth season for Fair Haven Neighbors in Action. The neighborhood has been transformed by the dedication of this group, which has planted over 40 street trees during this time period. Working with these neighbors is highly energetic and cheerful, volunteers of all ages come and join the plantings, building camaraderie and successful restoration work. During the summer of 2018, the group added three new trees, focusing on Exchange St and Poplar St.
