Tree Planting with OurCityForest.org - Burbank Neighborhood

Ever planted a tree before?  Think you got what it takes?  Plant a tree with your loved ones and let it symbolize the bond you share.  You also help give life back to Earth by supporting the social, communal, environmental benefits of trees.

This Saturday February 1st we will be supporting Our City Forest (OCF), an urban forestry non-profit that strives to make the city of San Jose a greener place.  This planting will take place at Burbank Neighborhood and we will be meeting at 387 Richmond Avenue, San Jose at 9:00am.  We will be planting 15 trees with OCF and other volunteer groups.  Each person will be planting one tree in a team of two to four.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

Bring water, snacks, sun protection and clothes you can get dirty!  Closed toed shoes are required.  Arrive by 9:00am to watch the planting demonstration and help set up.  We will be finishing the planting by 12:00pm.

We understand situations may arise.  If you are no longer able to attend, please change your RSVP status EARLY (preferrably 48 hours in advance) so that other people on the waiting list can be notified in time to take your spot.  Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  If you are interested in attending but the RSVP has been closed, then please contact the organizer(s) to check for availability.  The RSVP is set to close 24 hours before the start of the event to help OurCityForest and Silicon Valley Volunteer manage the headcount.  We can be reached at [masked].

Thank you,

Silicon Valley Volunteer
