VMPCP Final Tree Planting Day 2017
Sat, 6 May 2017, 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
Join us for the FINAL tree planting day of the VMP Landscape Enhancement Plan Phase I project that kicked-off in 2011.
Tree planting days could not have happened without the support of our community and volunteers to get the trees in the ground properly, so that they'll survive and grow!
This final tree planting day will take place on May 6th, 2017. The VCMCP will prepare sites for planting in advance. We ask participants to arrive by 8:30 am at the parking lot of 427 Wing London at the north end of Crumlin Road across from London Airport. From there, volunteers will be shuttled by bus to the designated planting sites.
Please prepare to dress for the weather as the event will run in rain or shine. Wear removable layers of light-colour clothes; long-sleeve shirts, pants and safety vests are recommended. Bring hats/sun-visors, sunglasses, lots of water, work/gardening gloves, boots/shoes (closed-toe and flat-heeled only), and sunscreen.
NOTE: Each team is asked to bring a few garden spades and rakes, a hammer, and a box cutter as possible.
Once the planting is done, the VCMCP will provide you with an AMAZING lunch as our THANKS for your contribution. The day will be filled with fun, and you will leave having contributed to the environmental and aesthetic integrity of our beautiful city!
If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team. Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering to help with this tree-planting initiative.
