For the fourth year in a row, State Representatives Ed Delaney and Greg Porter were on hand Opening Day of the Market with free saplings which they handed out to the community.

Delaney and Porter brought 300 saplings of ten different varieties along with sheets of information on how to plant and care for the small trees. The saplings are supplied by the Department of Natural Resources.

Every year, the sapling giveaway is eagerly anticipated and well-received by members of the community.  Four years on, there are healthy young trees all over the Broad Ripple area thanks to the efforts of these two local Representatives.
