Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetland - Green Seattle Day with ...11/02/2019
Plant a forest and grow community! Help us create a healthier, happier, and greener Seattle by coming out to our biggest planting event of the year – Green Seattle Day! From creating wildlife habitat, to combating climate change, and providing a place for residents to recreate: having a hand in Green Seattle Day is one of the best ways to give back to your neighbors, parks, and your local forest.
Join the fun with the Tilth Alliance and be one of hundreds of volunteers planting native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will become the future forest of Seattle. All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages. We'll have tasty pumpkin curry after the planting!

What to Bring
Come dressed for the weather (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking shoes or boots), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and rain jacket. We'll have tools and gloves for you to use, as well as coffee, water, a mid-morning snack and some farm-fresh pumpkin curry afterward. Help reduce waste by bringing your own refillable coffee mug/water bottle if you have one.
Where to Meet
Head to the welcome station by the greenhouse at the north end of the farm. We'll be spread out throughout the farm while we plant, so look for event leads wearing orange vests. Be sure to enjoy some tasty, farm-fresh pumpkin curry around noon at the classroom/kitchen building.
Where to Park
Onsite parking is very limited. Please carpool, walk, bike, take the bus or use light rail.
