Green Kirkland Stewards will give you training on potting up bare root plants. You'll be handling soil and live plants in a sensitive state so care and precision will be needed for this rewarding task. After potting you'll help with other fun nursery tasks to keep GKP restoration projects rolling!

* Closed Toed Shoes Required (ex: tennis shoes, sneakers or boots but no sandals)
* Recommended: Clothes that can get dirty
* Raingear * Warm Layers * Long Pants/Long Sleeves * Full water bottle & Snacks
* Tools, training and gloves are provided
Getting there: The park entrance is located in 108th Ave NE, a short distance from the intersection with NE 116th Street. From 108th Ave NE take a right turn into McAuliffe Park. Park near the buildings on your left or in the Drive past the buildings in the dead end. Walk back out of the entrance and across the street to the fenced area - this is the native plant nursery within the maintenance yard.
Youth volunteering: This event is not suitable for those under 18
