We invite members of Siksika Nation to join volunteers from the Calgary Tree Planting team to plant 250-300 Saskatoon berry bushes. Planting will take place south of the Siksika Business plaza on July 16th at 10 AM-2 PM. This is the first step to Siksika Nation’s own saskatoon berry farm that will be utilized and operated by the nation. This farm will provide berries to the community and new economic opportunities for the Nation in years to come.
What to bring:
- spade/shovel, rake and/or wheelbarrow if you have one (if not, don’t worry as we will have extra)
- Lots or water, and snacks
- Dress for the weather
- Closed toed shoes
To sign up please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are signing up for the July 16th Siksika tree planting event.
We would also like to say ‘Thank you!’ for the generous support of UHAUL, Tree Canada and the help of the Calgary Tree Planting Team. With the help of these organizations, we will be planting a Saskatoon berry farm at Siksika Nation!
Can’t wait to see you there!
