The Root Ball

The Root Ball is the annual fundraiser for Greenscape of Jacksonville. Funds raised through this event assist in the ongoing operation of one of the nation’s longest-running tree groups that has provided education, advocacy, and trees in the ground right here in our city for more than 45 years.

Since 2007, the Late Bloomers Garden Club has partnered with Greenscape to produce the Root Ball, a fundraiser to help raise awareness of the importance of trees in Jacksonville and to assist in the support of the River City’s only tree-planting organization.
