Age LimitAll Ages
The Festival Beach Food Forest is a 3/4-acre edible landscape on public park land that nearing its one-year groundbreaking anniversary. On It's My Park Day, come help us to plant HUNDREDS of perennial plants throughout the food forest that will grow up to provide access to free and nutritious foods for years to come, alongside over 100 young fruit and nut trees.
Gloves, water bottle, work clothes. We will have snacks available for volunteers, but people with particular dietary or health considerations (allergies, diabetes, vegan, gluten free, etc.) might want to pack a snack that suits their needs. Check the weather and plan accordingly. Please come for the whole four hours or commit to volunteering for at least two hours.
PerksWe'll be rolling from a Fall Planting into a potluck CELEBRATION --- stick around after the work day to get a guided tour of the food forest, or kick back and enjoy some music and festivities! More info here:

Hi folks! The Festival Beach Food Forest core team elected to switch our event time to 10AM to 2PM (it was previously 8AM to Noon). I hope that this change works well with your schedules! We are also planning to have music and festivities in the afternoon following the work day, and you are invited to stick around and celebrate with us. We're totally looking forward to it --- thank you for choosing to come to Festival Beach Food Forest for It's My Park Day!!
