GreenLB Tree Planting

Hola Green Long Beach! Enthusiasts,

Join GreenLB as we create an urban forest-like garden in North Long Beach. 
We will be planting roughly 40 trees in a vacant, mulch filled lot. 
We are collaborating with the Arts Council of Long Beach, as part of the A LOT Initiative 
(, to activate underutilized spaces around Long Beach. 

Our first tree planting will take place 
THIS SATURDAY on August 31st from 9am to 12pm. 
The location is at the corner of Artesia & Atlantic, 
same location at the Greener Good Farmers Market (North). 
Planting a tree is rewarding for the body, mind, and soul. 
Come learn how to properly plant a tree and then come back 
throughout the year to see how big it gets ;)

We will have a water bottle refill station provided, 
so be sure to bring your reusable h2o bottle. Also recommended 
is sunscreen, a hat, and your favorite pair of work gloves, 
we'll take care of the major tools and trees.
Location:  609 E. Artesia Blvd (corner of Atlantic & Artesia)click here for the map
Time: Saturday, August 31st: 9AM - 12PM
Provided:  Refreshments, Water refills, shovels/gloves
What to bring: Reusable water bottle, gloves/hat, sunscreen, yourselves & friends!
