Hello! My name is Anna Hope, I’m 14 and a homeschool student. I got my idea for A Little Hope after the ice storm this spring, I saw hundreds of broken trees, I, too, had lost a Redbud tree last fall due to weather and I was devastated. Seeing all the broken trees inspired me to save up money to buy 1,000 seedlings to give away. I contacted Daniel Hintz with Downtown Bentonville Inc. and Nancy Desler with the Bentonville/Bella Vista Chamber of Commerce telling them about my project. Their businesses have generously donated the funds to purchase my trees! So, I have 1,000 trees that I will be passing out April 22nd at the Bentonville Square and May 9th at the NWA Green Expo! They will both be fun events! (See post on upcoming April events for more information)
I will use A Little Hope blog to keep you informed of the environmental events taking place in Northwest Arkansas! I will also have tips and ideas for creating a better "green" lifestyle! If you have an event you would like to see posted, a tip or idea please drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be making updates to my blog at least twice a month.
