The City of Victoria is offering a series of free, monthly workshops on tree planting and maintenance as a part of the UNECE global campaign, Trees in Cities Challenge wherein cities around the world are working to catalyze nature-based solutions to climate change. Victoria is the first city in Canada to join the Challenge!
The City would like to work alongside community to help meet the goal of planting 5,000 trees on public and private land by the end of 2020. This can include planting trees on your own private property, volunteering at a community tree planting day in your neighbourhood, and learn about tree selection, planting techniques, pruning, and long-term tree care at the free monthly tree-care workshops.
As a partnership with the Fernwood NRG’s Community Orchard, the City is offering a Tree Care and Fruit Tree Pruning Workshop on Saturday, February 22nd from 10:00am to 1:00pm. The workshop begins at the Fernwood Community Centre. Register online at victoria.ca/recreation.
Join the Trees in Cities Challenge in four easy steps: Pledge to plant trees, learn about tree care, record your trees in the Tree Tracker, and learn how to become a Tree Champion.
