What we'll be doing
We will be planting trees. No prior experience is necessary. FUF will supply tools and guidance. FUF planters are real knowledgeable and you will have the opportunity to learn lots; just go ahead and ask as the day goes along.
If you need a ride and can get to the glen park bart station, I can pick you up and then drop you off back at the station.
What to wear/bring
• Bring water to stay hydrated.
• Bring sunglasses/hat and wear sunblock if the day is sunny.
• Wear work clothes that can get dirty -- your shoes, especially, will be covered in dirt by the end of planting.
• Gloves and other tools will be provided on site but if you have your own pair of garden gloves, bring those instead.
FUF will provide coffee and pastries in the morning and afterwards the home owners provide the potluck to the volunteers!
