In 2014, Brightside launched the "One Bright City" initiative to assist Louisville’s community in becoming better environmental stewards. Trees are an integral part of this initiative because of the environmental, economic, and social benefits they assist with. Louisville has been experiencing poor air quality, areas of high heat concentrations, and polluted water, especially in areas where there is a lack of tree canopy.
In an effort to bring awareness in assisting our local ecosystem and the continual support of biodiversity, Brightside challenges and invites residents of Louisville to get out on the first Saturday in November and plant trees, flowers, and plants within the community. We are encouraging everyone to plant in their own yard, neighborhood, at their school, church, or place of employment or to join in the Brightside led planting project.
If you have a planting project in mind, tell us about it! Register your project using our Planting Project Registration Form so we can see all the wonderful work going on in the community.
If you would like to get involved with Community-Wide Planting Day by sponsoring or volunteering at the Brightside-led planting project this November, please click here or contact Brightside at (502)574-2613.
