‘How To Crew’ Tree Planting Workshop

Calling all tree lovers! We are recruiting members of the How To Crew to take a special role in preparing for Earth Day in 2019. Each year, residents from Windsor-Essex County are invited to plant over 2,000 trees on this special day. The 2019 celebration will take place on Sunday April 28th at the green space near Florence Avenue and Wyandotte Street east in Windsor.

The How To Crew works with ERCA staff as the ‘behind the scenes’ tree planting team. Everyone works together to flag the site in advance, set up planting equipment, unload trees and provide support to event guests who need a refresher on how to plant a seedling and large stock tree.

No experience is required! All ages welcome.
