Please join UofL's Green Heart project and Louisville Grows again with 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 150 volunteers on the day of the planting. No experience is necessary - everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us.

Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in becoming a proper tree planter! If you cannot help with the physical labor, other volunteer opportunities include registration, breakfast, and lunch volunteers.

Louisville Grows will provide a light breakfast to all volunteers beginning at 8am, and groups leave to start planting at 9am. Lunch will be served from 12-2pm, and any volunteers who can stick around afterward to help finish planting are welcome.

Louisville Grows will provide gloves and tools, but please dress appropriately for the weather. You'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required.

This planting will be our second 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.

Register here.
