  • It may be helpful to bring a towel, an extra pair of socks to change into after planting and some clean shoes for the car ride home.
  • While we have shovels, buckets, gloves and wheelbarrows to share, we highly recommend bringing your own to this free event to ensure enough equipment for everyone.
  • Volunteer paperwork

 What can I wear to the event?
