Life Skills: Problem Solving in the Corn Maze
Last week, 12 participants in our JobPrep program gathered with their case managers to learn about and practice problem solving and decision making skills. Together, the group navigated a corn maze to solve trivia questions and played a "Crack the Safe" game. 

Past Life Skills workshops from 2017 included Healthy Eating at the farmer's market, Employment Scavenger Hunt at the Mall of America, and Emotional Health with MyHealth Clinic in Hopkins. Participants come together at these workshops to build skills, try new activities, and get to know each other over food and fun!

We're Hiring Young People!
People ages 14-24 who are interested in our JobPrep program can fill out our
interest form online. We have work opportunities indoors and outdoors, on weekdays and weekends!

New Trees in Norwood Park
On Monday, October 23, Tree Trust partnered with the City of Brooklyn Park, Verizon, Andersen Corporation, NFL Green, and the Minnesota Super Bowl LII Host Committee to plant 65 trees in Norwood Park. 

Norwood Park was chosen as the location of this planting because it has more than 50 ash trees that will eventually be removed due to the emerald ash borer. The new trees we planted will provide much needed shade in the coming years, especially as the ash trees are removed. See more photos on  Facebook!
Tree Tip
Did you know thin barked, young trees can be damaged by sun scald and frost in the winter, resulting in cracks? 

Be sure to wrap your young maples, lindens, oaks, honeylocusts, and crabapples. 

You can find wrap at your local garden center!
