Friends of Trees Planting -- Saturday, March 12 -- ORDER TREES / VOLUNTEER

It's time for the annual Friends of Trees Sabin Neighborhood Tree planting! The event is next Saturday on March 12, 2011 at Holladay Park Church 2120 NE Tillamook St at 8:45 am -1:00pm It's too late to order tree for this year's planting, but we would love volunteers. This is a really fun family event. The day starts at 9:00am with bagels, juice and coffee. You will join a planting team who goes through the neighborhood helping to plant your neighbors trees. And guess what? The holes for the trees are already pre-dug the week before. You will get a little dirty and learn the proper way to plant and stake a tree.

After wards there will be lunch provided to refuel you for the rest of your Saturday. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors and get dirty on Saturday morning.

How else can you help?

Volunteer roles include:
- Planting crews
- Help with food/refreshments. Help serve or contribute a crockpot of soup or chili
- Truck drivers (we need open bed trucks to carry trees to homes)
- Helping with registration
