This is an all ages event. Join Moritz Sanio, Bill Gaines and the whole crew from Trees for Guelph for the final community planting this spring.
We plant rain or shine.
Planting starts at 9:30 AM and runs until 12:30 PM. Drop by for as long as you can. Plant one tree or plant for all three hours.
Register on-site on the day at the welcome table.
You may bring your own shovel, pails for watering and gardening gloves. If you don’t have gear…DON’T WORRY, we have some you can borrow.
Please wear sturdy footwear and layers of clothing that are comfortable to work and have fun in. We recommend pants, long sleeves and high socks for protection from ticks and mosquitoes. Don’t forget a water bottle and sun protection, the spring sun last week was very strong.
Moritz and Bill will be demonstrating planting techniques continuously throughout the planting sessions so come for as little or as long as you can. Learn all the techniques to plant for high survival rates.
Are you a high school students wanting volunteer hours? Make sure to bring your log sheet so we can record your efforts.
We cannot do this without the incredibly generous support from our partners including the City of Guelph, Grand River Conservation Authority, TD Friends of the Environment, Copernicus Education Products, The Modern Bride, Johnson & Johnson, Rotary Club of Guelph South, Stantec, Pollination Guelph, Royal City Brewing, Guelph Building Supply, Home Depot, Rona, Upper Grand District School Board and Wellington Catholic District School Board.
