Description & Details

 

TreeMobile is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run project organized by Transition Toronto and Transition Guelph, two local groups of volunteers dedicated to supporting and nurturing the growth of a more resilient city.  

Join us this April to help bring climate-appropriate fruit trees and plants to our fellow Torontonians!  Here’s how it works:  local residents purchase affordable fruit trees and plants from us and our volunteer team helps deliver and plant the trees/plants this April.  Help us empower people to achieve food security by growing their own food and make seasonal organics locally accessible!

Volunteers are needed to help us with this fun project!

We have 3 positions available:

1.    Sorting plants the day before the planting day

2.    Team leaders for deliveries and planting

3.    Pick-up site coordinators

These are the dates:

   Our Sorting Day is Saturday, April 29th when we will organize the plants and deliveries

   Our Planting Day is Sunday, April 30th when we will deliver and plant the trees and plants in teams

Benefits to volunteering with TreeMobile include:

   Meeting new friends who share an interest in the environment, gardening, food security and community building

   Spending a wonderful spring weekend outdoors

   Making a difference - knowing that with proper care, the trees will grow into carbon-storing, food-providing, beautiful beings

   Enjoying a TreeMobile-supplied lunch after the planting is done

 

Please note, volunteers must be 16 years of age or older
