About 80 volunteers tried to make Homewood a little bit greener by taking part in the annual planting of native tree seedlings along the Shades Creek Greenway on Saturday, Nov. 4.

The event was organized by the Homewood Environmental Commission and Samford University, which are in the third year of their five-year partnership to conduct the plantings, and is also part of the HEC’s ongoing “Green Skies Over Homewood” initiative.

It’s gratifying for organizers to see the progress along the greenway since the program started in 2014, said HEC Chair Amy Milam.”I love coming back to the greenway each year and seeing how the seedlings have grown,” she said. “We can see the impact every time we come back out here.”
