Wildflower Coach

Click here to volunteer as a Wildflower Coach


Do you have a passion for planting?  Do you want to share your love of gardening and knowledge with others? Then, please join us in creating a bio-diverse habitat in our community.

Approximate time commitment: 

  • 2 hours on Sunday, May 3, 2020, to greet your assigned group of 5-10 Planters, lead them to the designated wildflower planting beds, and to demonstrate how to safely and properly plant wildflowers

  • Your choice of three starting times*

*When choosing your start time at the Planting Site, remember to be at the Mount Joy GO Station 30 minutes earlier than your start time because that's how long the Shuttle Bus trip and walk to the Wildflower Beds takes.


Good things to know and be able to do:

  • be able to properly plant wildflowers and coach our Planters how to do so too

  • be able to bring trowel or small shovel, knee pads, and bug repellent

  • be appropriately attired (work gloves, sun-protection, rubber boots, layered clothing, rain-gear, etc.) as all 10,000 Trees events proceed rain or shine

  • be able to direct your Planters to all key facilities (washrooms, lunch area, water-refilling station, first aid station, etc.) 

Our Wildflower Planting Manager Cathie and her assistant Kamal will provide you with training materials and any support you need to make your experience an enjoyable and successful one.
