Event Description:
A Transition Whatcom Event!

The local 10-10-10 event begins at 9 am on the steps of Bellingham City Hall. Live music, info booths and speakers get us started, with Bellingham Mayor Dan Pike planting our first tree in the Bellingham Public Library grounds at 10:10 a.m. Then we load up bike trailers with our assembled plants and head to the school to plant the new additions to the school garden. Bring your energy and enthusiasm, and a shovel if you can!

We will be planting at Alderwood, Birchwood, Columbia, Roosevelt and Parkview Elementary Schools, Shuksan and Fairhaven Middle School, Squalicum High School – all in the Bellingham School District plus Beach Elementary School (Lummi Island) and the Lummi Nation School.

We still need bike trailer folks to transport the plants from City Hall to the schools, Planters at each school, and help with staging the Kick-off event.
The day before (Saturday) we need a pick-up brigade to transport donated compost to the school locations.
