The Old Louisville Neighborhood Council and the UofL Sustainability Council invite volunteers to help restore the urban canopy on the northern edge of UofL's Belknap Campus.

We'll be planting 31 street trees (2" dbh) with our neighbors at two different locations. The closest to UofL will be along both sides of 3rd Street between Bloom and Hill Streets (just one block north of Cardinal Blvd). Volunteers should gather outside the 3rd Avenue Baptist Church (at 3rd & Bloom St.) to be assigned to small tree-planting teams.

Donuts, coffee and light breakfast items will be available prior to 9am, when work will begin. A pizza lunch will be served for all volunteers after the trees are planted.

Simultaneously, volunteers will also be planting trees further north and west in the Limerick neighborhood at a variety of spots between 7th & 2nd and Breckinridge & Ormsby. If preferred, volunteers may gather at 7th & St. Catherine to be assigned into teams for that area at 9am.

All are welcome. Tools will be provided, but volunteers may also bring their own shovels and gloves. Masks and physical distancing required.

Questions should be directed to Herb Fink 502-552-0399
