Thanks to the generous support of UHAUL and Tree Canada, the Calgary Tree Planting Team is happy to announce a tree planting event at Siksika Nation on July 16th from 10AM – 2PM!
We will be planting 200-300 Saskatoon berry bushes at the Nation. When these plants mature in future years, they will be part of a new berry farm run by Siksika Nation. This farm will provide berries to the community for years to come, and the farm will also provide new economic opportunity to the community.
To sign up please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are signing up for the July 16th Siksika tree planting event. Please include this information:
- your name, phone number, how many volunteers you are bringing, and if you are able to bring a shovel, wheelbarrow, or rake. And note that we will have about a dozen extra spades so please don’t hesitate to come even if you have no equipment.
- if you are bringing kids. You are welcome to bring kids 7 years old and over, as tree planting can be a bit hazardous for younger children. And we will require that you sign a waiver (especially for minors).
- Let us know if you are willing to sign a photo release. In order to thank our UHAUL and Tree Canada for their support, it is nice to be able to post about the event with pictures online. If you don’t want photos of you, let us know and we can arrange it.
