Event Details:   

Date: Saturday July 9, 2022

Time: 9:00 - 11:00 am

Locations: Forest Heights and Sifton Park 

We have a maximum of 60 volunteer spots.

We plant outdoors, so please dress for the weather! Working in a natural area, it is possible that you may encounter thistles, sticks, or garbage. Consider dressing in layers, long pants, and a hat. Volunteers must wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes, such as runners. Volunteers may not participate in planting activities if they wear inappropriate footwear, such as sandals, flip-flops, or high heel shoes. 


City of Edmonton Vaccination Policy:

The City of Edmonton’s A1701A Administrative Procedure: COVID-19 Vaccination requires volunteers to be Fully Vaccinated (2 doses or more) against COVID-19 before engaging in volunteer work.  By participating you agree that you (or in the case of a guardian signing on behalf of a minor participant, any participant aged 12-17) are Fully Vaccinated or have an approved exemption from the City, and that you are prepared to show proof if requested. This does not apply for participants under the age of 12.

If you are feeling unwell please do not attend. 


Remember to bring a water bottle and snacks, as planting trees can be a very physical activity! We suggest you bring sunscreen, bug spray, and anything else that will make your volunteer shift an enjoyable experience. Root for Trees will supply the shovels, gloves, and plants. 


Please discuss any special concerns, severe allergies, or medical conditions with the Program Leader at that time. We want to ensure that everyone has a safe planting experience.


Thank you, and happy planting! A picture containing text, plant, gear
