Christy Greenway Tree Planting

December 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Christy Greenway Fall Planting

This in-person event is a great opportunity to connect with nature and make a positive impact on our community as we celebrate the Christy Greenway and all it has to offer. Don’t miss out on this chance to contribute to the beauty of our surroundings. Mark your calendars and join us for a day of planting and camaraderie- Helping hands of all ages are welcome!

WHERE: Old St. Marcus Cemetery between Holly Hills Blvd and Loughborough Ave

WHEN: Saturday morning from 9:00am to 12:00pm

WHAT TO WEAR/BRING: Volunteers are asked to bring a water bottle and wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, and closed toed shoes that are appropriate for digging. Keep in mind you will get dirty! All tools (shovels and pick axes) needed to plant trees, gloves and snacks will be provided.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Tree planting events are held rain or shine. Upon checking in at the volunteer table, you will be asked to sign a liability waiver. You will then be assigned to a planting zone. Following opening remarks, we will provide training on how to properly plant and care for trees. Volunteers will be with your group throughout the event to guide you on which trees to plant in which locations. Expect to dig, mulch, and get your hands dirty!

PETS: We love pets, but for their safety and the safety of others, please leave them at home when you are volunteering at tree events.

Thank you for helping expand our precious tree canopy & for making our community a better place! We are grateful for your support and are counting on your help!
