Event Details

Planting trees is a great way to green our city but once those young trees are in the ground, they need our help to get them through their first few years. Do your part to improve the health of our tree canopy at our third Thirsty Thursday event of the summer by weeding, mulching and watering the 40 trees planted on the grounds of E.L. Haynes Public Charter School and around the perimeter during our spring Community Tree Planting season. 


Getting There

Registration will be located at the corner of 7th and Webster St NW. There is plenty of unrestricted street parking in the neighborhood. The Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro Station (Green/Yellow Line) is 0.6 miles away and the 60, 62, 63 and 64 Metrobus lines all stop nearby.



  • 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. 



Light refreshments will be served during the event. Casey Trees will supply drinking water throughout the event.
