November 7th 2015 — Tree Planting and Groundbreaking Picnic: We will be planting a majority of the trees in the morning before our big event and celebrate one of the first food forests planted on public land! The tree planting will be facilitated by TreeFolks staff and will consist of 100 volunteers planting 100+ trees on the food forest site.
Immediately following the volunteer tree planting the Festival Beach Food Forest will host a Groundbreaking Picnic to celebrate the groundbreaking and recognize the organizations and community members that have supported the Food forest.
There will be lunch, refreshments and free chair massages for tree planting volunteers, announcements from FBFF and local supporters, acoustic bands and educational tables. Kids events, yoga and your neighbors will be there so come bring a picnic and join us!
