Tree Care Workshop in Astoria on Saturday
Join MillionTreesNYC and Build It Green!NYC this Saturday, October 13th from 2-4pm to learn about caring for street trees. We'll get started in the Build It Green!NYC Astoria warehouse at 3-17 26th Ave, Astoria, and then care for street trees nearby.
Help water and care for the 60,000 new street trees that have been planted across New York City! Join the MillionTreesNYC Stewardship Corps and help keep New York City GREEN by coming to a free MillionTreesNYC stewardship workshop where you will learn:
- What is MillionTreesNYC?
- How to identify trees in New York City
- Benefits trees bring to our city
- Tree Care - Water! Weed! Mulch!
All participants will care for trees using small gardening tools and watering buckets. Please dress for light gardening work, wear close-toed shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle.
Pledge to take care of a specific street tree and get a FREE watering kit and volunteer card.
Please be able to tell MillionTreesNYC where your tree is located.
