Village Garden Club will host trees dedication

The Village Garden Club of La Jolla will sponsor a dedication ceremony hosted by its Jacaranda Committee 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 3 at Kate Sessions Park, 5115 Soledad Road.

A native of Brazil and Argentina, the Jacarando tree flourishes in San Diego’s sunny climate. Most of the year it is feathery green but, in the spring, it blooms with a profusion of lush, lavender flowers. Light File

The ceremony is for people who have donated Jacaranda trees to enhance the community in memory (or in honor of) someone. Upon request, the Village Garden Club delivers the trees free of charge to be planted in parks, churchyards, streets, hospitals, libraries and recreation centers. The club also supplies large community projects like the Horton Plaza Park and the Embarcadero renovation, ensuring there are people to water and care for each tree.

To date, more than 2,200 trees have been placed around town by the club.
