The Seven Trees Neighborhood Association is partnering with Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley, the City of San Jose + Lowe’s to revitalize an undeveloped plot of land in east San Jose.

As of this morning, a team of ~70 volunteers have started work on planting three oak trees near Cedro Street + Cas Drive, and more improvements around the Seven Trees Community Center.

Under Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley’s “Building a Healthy Neighborhood” program, volunteers have worked on critical residential repairs throughout Seven Trees, and are committed to continuing the partnership through 2024.

Over the past two years, Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley + Lowe’s Hometowns have helped to fund improvements to under-resourced communities throughout the US.

The Seven Trees Neighborhood Association says future projects include landscaping for a local playground, sidewalk repairs, and creating Seven Trees-specific murals.
