Arbor Lodge, Kenton, Overlook, Portsmouth Neighborhood Planting (N Portland)
March 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us in planting trees as a volunteer — or click HERE to purchase a tree for your home.
If you’re using an iPhone, you’re likely seeing an 8am start time; please know our event runs 9am – 1pm! This goof is a function of daylight savings time not syncing correctly with iOS on our calendar. We apologize for any confusion!
Please arrive 8:30-8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast treats and hot coffee or chocolate. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves and tools, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots. Our neighborhood volunteers will also provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete.
Have a pickup truck? We need your help getting the baby trees to their planting sites a few blocks away from the staging site. Please sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/truck if you’re able to help us out in this key role.
This event will have a bike planting crew! Want to join the bike team? Sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/bike. Bikers with trailers and cargo bikes are awesome, but anyone with a bike is welcome to take part!
Looking to volunteer as a group? RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people – click HERE to do so. RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer — you can simply show up!
Are you under age 18 and planting without your parent/guardian? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer. We kindly request youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.
Please contact Jenny & Pablo at (503) 595-0213 if you have questions or need any further information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
