Mr. Joe Green Honor Tree

The Friends of the Parkland Library honored the Director of the Parkland Library, Mr. Joe Green, by presenting and planting a Ylang-Ylang Tree in his honor at the Parkland Community Garden.  Mr. Green has made a positive impact on our community by being an strong leader as the Director of the Parkland Library and by spearheading the Library expansion.  He also worked along side the local Boy Scout troop to make a butterfly garden, as well as, a contemplation garden where students can go to relax, to meditate, and to have peace.  Mr. Green co-founded and created the Parkland Community Garden and brought  people together to till the earth, grow vegetables, and learn about gardening. We thank Mr. Green for making a positive difference in our community by being a visionary, a leader, and a facilitator to make Parkland a better place to live!
