Calendar for FALL 2016

OldMillPark021FALL 2016 TREE PLANTING SCHEDULE 

Hanson Avenue, Saturday, Oct. 1, 9-noon.

Elm Street, Saturday, Oct. 8, 9-noon.

Dorothy Hart Community Center, Oct. 15, 9-noon.

Fall Hill Avenue, Oct. 22, 9-noon.

Email Tree Fredericksburg Development Director Steve Watkins at swatkins000@gmail.com if you or your group or business would like to volunteer. We’ll be planting 50 trees on each of the first three Saturdays, and 110 trees at Fall Hill on the 22nd.

The Tuesday before each planting, several volunteers will be working with Tree Fredericksburg staff to prepare the trees—washing root balls—at the little park on Powhatan Street, across from Hugh Mercer Elementary. Let us know if you’d like to volunteer to help with that as well.

What to expect:

The holes are pre-dug so the work is not too difficult.  We plant rain or shine unless it is a thunder storm.

What to bring:

We supply all the tools and equipment. Bring work gloves if you have them, otherwise we supply them.  Please wear closed toed shoes.

If you bring children, be prepared to work one on one with them for their safety.  We are planting along the streets and safety is our main concern.

RSVP

Reply to swatkins000@gmail.com if you are able to volunteer.  We will send out a reminder and further instructions closer to the date of the plantings in Fall 2016.  We hope to see you all come and plant with us.
