Volunteers Needed – Food Forest Planting June 11

Join us on Saturday, June 11 at 9:00 AM for an experience of planting a huge food forest in our community garden.

We have over 200 trees, bushes and other plants to put in the ground that will transform the space in one day. Be part of the largest food forest planting in our city and learn how food forests work to provide food and habitat for generations to come.

Your help will be much appreciated and we want your day to be a very pleasant one so your attention to a few planning details is needed:

  • Make sure to complete the required paperwork – photo permission
  • Make sure to wear work clothing that will allow you to dig and shovel without worrying including closed-toed shoes
  • Although water, drinks and snacks will be provided, make sure to bring what you need to be comfortable throughout a day in the sun – hats, sunscreen, medications
  • Arrive early to participate in training so you can learn as well as help

We look forward to working with you! Food Forest experts from Regenerate Design will be joining us to make sure our trees have a great start. Also, we will have a small celebration ceremony with our generous donors TD Green Streets and Tree Canada at 11:00 AM before our lunch break.
