Putting up a Christmas tree shows you've got the spirit of the season, unless you decorate it with stolen car keys. Jingle all the way with this Groupon.
- $12 for a mini real Christmas tree with ribbon (a $25 value)
Trees must be picked up at the annual Holiday Greenery Festival on December 5 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The festival, which is Greensboro Beautiful's biggest fundraising project, also features local artisans, a harp player, and food vendors serving cider and snacks. Proceeds from this Groupon go to charity and the nonprofit volunteer organization Greensboro Beautiful.
Dedicated to the conservation and enhancement of the Greensboro community, Greensboro Beautiful's volunteers put their green thumbs to good use. The volunteers at the nonprofit have planted trees during NeighborWoods Tree Plantings and developed four free-to-the-public community gardens supported by Greensboro Beautiful. These gardens draw in visitors throughout the year with their expansive colorful plots, as seen in the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, and elevated boardwalks winding through wetlands, as seen in the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park. The Greensboro Arboretum offers 17 acres hosting 10 woody plant collections, display gardens, and structural features. The Gateway Gardens accents the entrance to the City of Greensboro and features colorful, playful accents that make the park family-friendly. In addition to adding greenery to neighborhoods to enhance their beauty, the volunteers clean up trash and abandoned pog discs littering the area.
