Looking for a way to improve your community’s health and promote conservation at the same time? You could try planting fruit trees in the floodplain. This was the idea behind Kingston Land Trust’s edible stream buffer along the banks of the Esopus Creek.
Kingston Land Trust Land
The KLT has purchased 61-81 Gross Street in Kingston from Ulster Habitat for Humanity with a grant for the full purchase from the Open Space Institute. The KLT plans to use this .86 acre undeveloped wooded property as a public space that will provide amenities and respite for trail users and surrounding community.
On SATURDAY May 4th, The Kingston Land Trust (KLT), TownOfUlsterCitizens.org, and Seed Song Farm are co-organizing An Earth Day Celebration (In Remembrance of Renno Budziak). The purpose of the event is to celebrate the arrival of spring as a community by engaging with land in our backyards.
