Sustainable Saratoga’s 3rd Annual TREE TOGA – April 30, 2016

Sustainable Saratoga’s 3rd Annual TREE TOGA – April 30, 2016

TREE PLANTERS & TREE HOSTS NEEDED!

Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project has scheduled its 3rd annual TREE TOGA planting effort for the morning of Saturday, April 30. Volunteers like you are the key to the success of this annual event. With your help, we can grow a green legacy that will benefit our great city for decades to come. Please volunteer by sending us an email at trees@sustainablesaratoga.org.


THE DETAILS: On Saturday, April 30th, volunteers will gather at High Rock Park, Farmer’s Market pavilion at 9:30 am for orientation, training, and site assignments. Keep a lookout for an email with more details as the event nears!


 

We need two types of volunteers: Tree Planters & Tree Hosts

TREE PLANTERS (a great family activity). Have fun being part of a horde of tree planters by volunteering from about 9-12 on the morning of Saturday, April 30.

TREE HOSTS (get a FREE TREE at your house). Volunteer to host a street tree in front of your house. Enjoy nurturing the young tree for the first two years, especially by keeping it watered during hot dry spells.

In 2016, we are excited to be planting twice the number of trees that we did in the past two years. As in the past, we will plant 25 trees funded from the City’s DPW tree budget. This April, however, we will also be planting 25 additional trees, funded by donors who have given generously to the tree fund of Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project.

To volunteer, or if you have questions, email us at trees@sustainablesaratoga.org.
