HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami) – As part of the Adopt-A-Tree program, Miami-Dade homeowners can select two free trees Saturday morning in Homestead.
In the second free trees event of 2013, residents will be eligible to choose from a variety of trees, such as Mango, Sugar, Apple, Inkwood and more, to adopt.
The trees are being given away Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Homestead Harris Field located at 1034 NE 8th Street (Turnpike Exit #2).
The event is being organized by the Miami-Dade County Division of Environmental Resources Management (DERM).
There will be experts onsite instructing on how to properly plant and care for the trees.
Also at this event, the Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department and the Miami-Dade County Office of Sustainability will be providing energy-efficient CFL bulbs and high efficiency showerheads to the residents who bring to the event their old showerheads and/or their most heavily used regular light bulbs (while supplies last).
