Hitachi Celebrates Earth Day at Commonwealth Nursery

In celebration of Earth Day 2022, the Hitachi, Ltd. Los Angeles Office was a sponsor of City Plants' and other local partners’ Earth Day Soirée, benefiting the revival of L.A.'s historic Commonwealth Nursery and catalyzing the climate resilience goals in L.A.'s Green New Deal.

Located on a historic 11-acre site in Griffith Park, the nursery serves as an urban ecological laboratory and training ground to help create a more livable and resilient city by growing trees and plants from locally-sourced seeds, training the next generation of environmental stewards, and developing green jobs of the future.

Trees are a top local-level defense to help communities combat extreme heat conditions and fight climate change. The event will help expand nursery infrastructure to grow more climate-ready trees and plants for priority low-canopy neighborhoods.
