L@G/Project Serve Guelph: Green Legacy Nursery - FULL
Outdoors, indoors, working with children, working with adults, working with seniors, focus on manual labour projects
Green Legacy Nursery is a tree planting initiative that began in 2004 with the goal of planting 150,000 for the 150th anniversary of the County of Wellington. Today, over one millions trees have been planted, making it the largest municipal tree planting initiative in North America!
Get involved with some tree planting! Volunteers are needed to assist with the production of 175,000 trees. Duties include filling containers, collecting seeds, sowing seeds, transplanting seedlings, packaging seedlings and general maintenance of trees.
This is an opportunity to learn species identification of trees, shrubs and wildflowers of Ontario and how to propagate, collect and stratify these seeds. It also gives the public a chance to improve the environment. Trees store carbon and help prevent climate change. The County of Wellington is planting trees today for a healthier tomorrow.
