SPREAD THE WORD

  • Much as the strength of a tree relies on a healthy root system to thrive - this movement is dependent on YOU and spreading the word.


  • For each person who commits to planting a tree, they in turn bring in at least two people who will also commit.  Our reach is extended much like the roots of a tree. 


  • Volunteer ambassadors are needed to spread the word via social media postings and other innovative ways friendly to the environment - contact us to volunteer with our team and receive your Welcome Pack including free seedling.


PUTTING THE 'FUN' IN FUNDRAISING

  • Contact us to receive our fundraising kit with a multitude of simple ideas as to how you may raise funds for the organization (so that we can purchase saplings and spread the word).  Here are just a few ideas:


  1. Get some friends together and offer services for "Fall Clean up" in your neighbourhood 
  2. Host a dinner party for friends - guests donate $ to Plant for the Planet.ca
  3. Have a clothes swap with friends - everybody pays a fee to attend and brings a bag of clothes


EVENTS

Our launch took place on National Tree Day, September 25, 2019 in Victoria, B.C.


Since inception in mid August we have been instrumental in the planting of 450 trees and will continue our efforts to encourage individual plantings by volunteers in our community (in their back yards, and using space on patios and balconies).  


In addition we will help you find homes for seedlings in designated urban planting areas.


Our plan is to start in Victoria B.C., move to other parts of the province and later nationally by collaborating with existing non -profits and NGO's operating across the country.


If you are reading this and do not live in Victoria, BC., please contact us to see how you can get started in your area.
