Event Details

Garfield Park holds a special historic place in D.C.’s history as one of the seventeen original federal appropriations purchased by the government in 1792. Originally identified by L’Enfant as a site for a grand cascade, the site was improved and transformed into a public park in the late nineteenth century. Despite various threats and encroachments over the years by both public and private interests, the land has remained an open public space serving the Capitol Hill area for more than two hundred years.

Complimenting the planting Casey Trees did last spring, we will be adding 19 trees to this Ward 6 park. This planting also marks the second Sustainable DC Initiative planting event of the season. 

 

Getting There

Both the Capitol South Metrorail Station and Eastern Market Metrorail Staton are a 0.5 mi. walk to the site. Street parking is limited.

 

Requirements 

  • All volunteers must sign a completed volunteer waiver form before participating. Children under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign a consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times. Waivers will be provided but to ease the registration process it is helpful to bring a completed copy to the event. 
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and care demonstration.
  • Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we are sure to have the necessary number of volunteers.
  • Arrive on time. Check-in opens a half hour prior to the indicated start time and volunteers must be present for the tool safety demonstration at the start of the event.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes are required. 

 

Meals

Volunteers are welcomed in the morning with a light breakfast. A celebratory lunch is provided at the conclusion of the event. Casey Trees will supply drinking water throughout the event.
