Tree Planting Party! | Saturday, Nov. 13

Volunteers Needed to Plant Trees!

Thurgood Marshall Elementary was recently awarded 4 trees through the “Trees for Neighborhoods” program. The goal of this project is to make a positive impact to the school community by bringing trees into the large spaces at Thurgood Marshall.

We hope that students will find shelter under these trees when they grow taller from the sun and the rain, as well as bringing beauty to the student space. Trees are also quite the environmental rockstars in that they also absorb carbon, help with rainwater management and help decrease heat absorption in the summer.  We have the fortune to have been awarded the following 4 trees: Douglas fir,  Vanessa Persian parrotiaTurkish filbert, and Dura Heat river birch – and now we are organizing a small number of volunteers to help us plant the trees.

We are seeking 20 volunteers (please note that volunteers must be masked and if vaccine eligible (over the age of 11) must be vaccinated; we are also limited to a maximum of 20 volunteers only).

The tasks we need volunteers to help us complete are:

    • digging 4 holes for the trees,
    • helping transport compost to the 4 tree holes by wheelbarrow and raking it around the base of the trees, and
    • establishing protective staking around each of the trees.
All the materials are already on site.

When: Saturday, November 13

Time: 10:00am – 2:00pmm

Where: Thurgood Marshall Elementary
