Green Seattle Day This Saturday!

2014 Green Seattle Day

Your forest needs you! Join the Green Seattle Partnership on Saturday, November 8th, as we kick off planting season with a day of volunteerism in 21 parks throughout the City at the 9th Annual Green Seattle Day.

Our biggest event of the year, Green Seattle Day is a great chance for first-time and long-time volunteers to help grow the forest in their own city by planting trees and other plants in city parks. This year our main site will meet at the Rainier Beach Community Center (lunch included after planting), but there are 17 other locations around the city that need volunteers, so check out the full list here, pick your lucky park, and sign sign up now so that we can plan the best event for everyone.

To join us at the main site, sign up to volunteer at the East Duwamish Greenbelt, Kubota Gardens, Lakeridge Park, or Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands, and meet at the Rainier Beach Community Center at 9am.

The Ballard park hosting Green Seattle Day this year is Golden Gardens. Join forest stewards from Carkeek Park, North Beach Park, and of course, Golden Gardens to spruce up the place a little bit.

Green Seattle Day is great for all ages. We’ll bring the gloves, tools, and all of the plants, you bring the helping hands! Coffee and snacks provided at all sites, so register early so that we can have enough for everyone. Please dress for the weather, and wear sturdy shoes that can get wet and a little dirty. This is our biggest party of the year and we want you there! More information available at www.greenseattle.org. Please contact Norah Kates at info@greenseattle.org, or call (206) 905-6943 with any questions.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in the parks!
