TREE PLANTERS NEEDED for our Winterizing Party!

Forêt Capitale Forest is hosting a winterizing party located at our Base of Operations. We need volunteers on Wednesday, October 26th and Thursday, October 27th to help plant the remaining potted trees before into the ground before it freezes!

We are also seeking volunteers to help mulch our Tiny Forest Demonstration Plots. By mulching the trees and the surrounding soil, we will help the soil retain moisture, provide nutrients to the soil and limit the growth of weeds. This is a great event to join as mulching is typically less strenuous. All are welcome to help with both planting trees and mulching. Invite any friends and family along that are interested in helping.

These two activities will give our trees the best opportunity to thrive over winter. Ensuring that they all can become beautiful mature trees.

If you’re interested in joining us for the winterizing party, please let us know at comms@foretcapitaleforest.ca.
