Return of the Native II: Wildflower and Tree Planting Workshop

  • Cheremoya Elementary School 6017 Franklin Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90028 United States (map)

Join us on Saturday, April 9th for an educational, hands-on beautification effort to benefit Cheremoya Elementary School and the Franklin Village neighborhood. We will be planting wildflowers as well as Catalina Cherry Trees, which are native to the Beachwood Canyon area. Together, they will draw pollinators and songbirds, and the trees will provide shade for years to come. Participants will learn from a TreePeople expert how to build a water saving berm, amend soil, and build sustainable tree fencing with repurposed tree stakes. 

We will provide morning refreshments and lunch for volunteers. Please wear sunscreen, and bring work gloves and water bottles. We will provide the tools. 

We will meet on the Cheremoya Avenue side of the Cheremoya Elementary School. Please be aware that the Hollywood Half Marathon is taking place that Saturday. Street closures will not affect the Franklin Village area, but traffic could be heavier than usual. Please plan accordingly.

This workshop is FREE, but space is limited, so you must RSVP. We hope you can make it!
