This year The Joinery partnered with Friends of Trees for the second annual "Woodstock Gives Back" event that was held on Sunday, September 11th. Organized by the Woodstock Business Association, this event involved over 25 businesses from the Woodstock Community. Each business partnered with local non-profits, to help raise awareness and support.
This year The Joinery partnered with Friends of Trees and during the event had a Build your own Bird house kids activity. The tally was counted and with the furniture sales of the day The Joinery will be sponsoring the planting of 100 trees with a proceeds raised.
The other amazing community building activity that occurred this day was the building of 30 birdhouses with neighborhood children. Our master craftsmen, apprentice, and furniture designer volunteered their time to build bird house kits and then to help the kids make their own. The day was an amazing success of working with he community and having a lot of fun! Below are a few of the photos from the day’s event.

Gary from Friends of Trees was out that day to cheer on the kids building their birdhouses and also teach neighbors about Friends of Trees.
Within an hour and fifteen minutes, 30 birdhouses were made by kids in the Woodstock neighborhood. All of them did an amazing job.
