UofL Students at Louisville Grows Tree PlantingRegister here.
Please join UofL, Louisville Grows, and our Taylor-Berry, Jacobs, Hazelwood, Beechmont, Oakdale, and Wilder Park neighbors as we dig toward our goal of planting 1000 trees this season!

We need 200 volunteers on the day of the planting.

No experience is necessary; everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us. Our Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in becoming a proper tree planter! Other volunteer opportunities include registration, breakfast, and lunch volunteers.

A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided to all volunteers. Louisville Grows will provide gloves and water bottles. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Waterproof outerwear is recommended if rain is forecasted. You'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so please dress to get dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required.

This planting will be in partnership with Green Heart Louisville, a University of Louisville study that seeks to determine how increased green space affects health and relationships within these neighborhoods.
