Volunteer Gardening at Free Tree Society
Dear KL Changemakers,
Calling tree huggers, green finger friends, eco-loving urbanites, gardening enthusiasts & hopefuls alike, and basically anyone who appreciates beautiful garden and greenery.
Get warm and fuzzy giving back to the community, all whilst helping save the environment!
This coming 16 Feb Protected content , we will be volunteering at the Free Tree Society (FTS) Nursery in Bangsar.
Activities include: Hands-on composting, propagating, repotting, weeding, pruning, fertilizing plants, nursery management and landscaping.
No experience necessary, so don't worry if you're a newbie at gardening. You just need to be willing to get your hands dirty - literally!
- All tools and equipment are provided by the nursery.
- There are toilet facilities and drinking fountain on site.
Volunteers are advised to dress for outdoor work and wear closed shoes. It is recommended that you bring your own hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent and change of clothes, as well as an umbrella/poncho (in case it rains).
FTS also advises that you "think zero waste & go green" by bringing your own water bottle and ensuring no plastic disposables are used.
If you can't make it to the activity but would like to help the Free Tree Society, you can:
- Donate your plant seeds or garden cuttings so that they can grow and turn them into free trees. Please note that tropical seeds are best planted fresh.
- Save and Donate your unwanted pots and trays. FTS will use these for propagation of new plants. Pots of all sizes welcome (clay/plastic/seed trays/troughs). Kindly remove and wash out old soil.
