Bay Area Weekend Events: Plant a Tree, 2018 Golden Gate Kennel Show

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- We've partnered with the team at Hoodline - the hyper-local neighborhood website to find weekend activities in and around the Bay Area.

Help Plant A Tree

Friends of the Urban Forest kicks off their 2018 planting season this upcoming weekend.

The group need volunteers to help plant sidewalk gardens in the Bernal Heights neighborhood Friday and Saturday.

Friends of the Urban Forest plant urban gardens once a month & trees twice a month.

Executive Director Dan Flanagan tells ABC7 News the organization is doubling its efforts in 2018.

"In the past we've needed about 40 volunteers for each planting, but now for planting we need about 80 volunteers every two weeks, which is a lot more people" says Flanagan about their goal to plant more than 2,000 trees across San Francisco in 2018.
