Sustaining Our Urban Landscape is hosting their first Summer Solstice festival Saturday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The event features an intimate, elegant, and offbeat evening of music, custom cocktails, local fare, and silent and live auctions.
Summer Soulstice will help raise critical funds for SOUL’s 2017-18 goal of planting 600 live native trees, growing its community forestry education, advocating for policies that protect our urban forest, and providing maintenance for valuable public trees and green infrastructure through volunteerism, officials said.
“Join us as we journey into our second year and move toward a greener, more sustainable, and resilient New Orleans together!” according to a press release.
SOUL works to build resilient and equitable communities in New Orleans through reforestation projects, educational workshops, advocacy initiatives, and volunteer programs. To buy tickets to Saturday’s fest – which range from $40 to $125 – click here.
