Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) and Portola Resident Ken Ogle are organizing a tree planting around St. Elizabeths of 12 trees. Interested residents chose trees that will grow large and change color in the fall.
The Portola FUF group is looking for volunteers and donors as they are only halfway towards raising their goal of $900 (all of which goes to the trees). Each tree is $75 and will also come with a water bag to ensure its success in the drought.
The church will be hosting a pot luck for volunteers and neighbors after the planting. If you are interested in volunteering you are invited to feast as a group afterwards and to bring a dish if possible!
People can feel free to contact head organizer, Ken Ogle, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to volunteer or donate.
