Louisville Grows needs YOU to join our tree planting team! Help us dig toward our goal of planting 1000 trees this Fall season. Trained Citizen Foresters will lead groups of volunteers to properly plant trees on residential properties. No experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us! Registration will take place in Lansden Park, 201 E 15th St., Jeffersonville, IN from 8:30am to 8:50am. Planting groups will depart at 9am. Dress appropriately for the weather. You'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required. Waterproof outerwear is recommended if rain is forecast. We will plant trees come rain or shine. If severe weather is expected, you will be notified about an alternate event date. Questions?
