We will be planting dozens of large stock trees (6-10′ tall) in their new forever homes adding health benefits and beauty across these neighborhoods of NE Portland. Coffee, hot chocolate, and breakfast snacks are provided for all volunteers. There is also a warm potluck lunch provided by the hosting neighborhood groups after the planting is finished — it’s a small way we can say ‘thank you’! All-gender restrooms are available at this event.
This is a rain or shine event!
