Although the Sierra Club Tree Team‘s 2015-16 planting season officially ended a month ago, we still have one more batch of trees in stock that we want to get in the ground ASAP. Therefore, we’re holding an “overtime” event on Saturday, July 16th. If you’re around, please join us!
We’ll be planting six trees along one block in Fruitvale. These six trees will bring our annual total to 1,900 trees planted!
Get all the details on our Meetup event page. We’ll meet at 9 am at our usual staging area in Fruitvale, 1122 29th Ave (the parking lot of Epic School). After we have our orientation and safety briefing, we’ll load the trees and supplies onto our truck and then go to the site a few blocks away.
The Meetup event says we’ll end at 1pm, but if we get a group of 8-10 planters, we’ll easily finish before noon. Saturday probably won’t be too hot anyway, but I prefer to work in the cool of the morning.
Please call or text me Derek at 510-435-2452 if you’re running late or need directions.
Watch our Meetup page for details about any future planting or pruning events.
As always, we supply the shovels, gloves, and other tools, and our experienced team leaders will train and supervise any volunteers new to planting.
