OKT co-sponsors tree-planting event at Alexander Park

Volunteer! Alexander Park Community Orchard

614 Alexander SE  NOVEMBER 1 @ 10:00 AM12:00 PM

OKT urban forester, Laura Casaletto, invites you to join friends and neighbors to plant 15 edible trees at Alexander Park. These trees will beautify the park and provide edible nuts and fruit for neighbors and the community. Every helping hand gathered will be greatly appreciated as the efforts of volunteers are what helps drive these events and programs.

Friends of Grand Rapids Parks provides the tools, trees, and training. You will need drinking water, any snacks you might want, closed-toed shoes, and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. We plant rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Lee (lee.mueller@friendsofgrparks.org) to register.

This project is funded in part by donations and sponsorship to the Friends of Grand Rapids Parks “tree bank,” the Grand Rapids Community Foundation and Our Kitchen Table.
