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!

    Hello! I just realized my husband signed us up for the tree planting near diamond heights that's tomorrow as well. I thought it was this one, so I wanted to rsvp. I'm sorry about that- but we will definitely try to go with you guys the next time we are free to plant again! :)

    Hi Maisy, don't mean to bail out but my bike just got a flat so I need to drop it off at home :( I could still make it but I'll be an hour late. If that is acceptable (and you guys still need help), let me know and I'll head back. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
