This is a fun event where the whole family can be part of giving back to their community.
It is through the generous commitment of volunteers that twenty-five young trees will be rooted throughout the City of Saratoga Springs. Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project will kick off at High Rock Park with registration, training, site assignments, and camaraderie, before dispersing to planting sites at 10 a.m.
Most of the Sustainable Saratoga plantings under the Tree Toga initiative will be street trees in the City’s right-of-way, some in front of private homes, and some at institutional properties. Home owners can volunteer to be tree hosts, agreeing to water and nurture the street tree during the first two vulnerable years. After a morning of getting their hands dirty while also greening up the City and making new friends, volunteers will meet for lunch at Harvey’s Restaurant, 14 Phila Street. If you are interested in supporting Sustainable Saratoga as a volunteer tree host, planter, waterer, or event day volunteer you can learn more or sign up at sustainablesaratoga.org.
