Come volunteer at our Community Nursery and Training Center on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 9am-12pm! The Our City Forest Nursery is where we grow our trees that are planted throughout the community. The work done at the Nursery is vital to ensure that we can carry out our mission of greening San Jose!

Nursery volunteers will help with tasks like building soil piles, making mulch buckets, removing invasive species, and transplanting plants and trees.

We will be adhering to new safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and only 5 volunteers will allowed to participate in each Nursery Workday to ensure the safety of all Our City Forest staff, AmeriCorps members, and volunteers.

About Our City Forest

Location:

646 N. King Rd., San Jose, CA 95133, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate a green and healthy Silicon Valley by engaging community members in the appreciation, protection, growth and maintenance of our urban ecosystem, especially our urban forest.

Description

The ultimate goal of the program is to facilitate the planting of one million trees in Silicon Valley, utilizing one million people. We have planted over 70,000 trees in San Jose, encouraging community members to join us in improving the environmental conditions of their communities. We focus on making a healthy urban forest accessible to all by offering services targeted towards disadvantaged communities because we believe a healthy environment should be available to all people, not just those who have the resources to access it.
