WHAT:                A hands-on planting event to establish the City’s first “Food Forest.”
 
                           Representatives from the City of West Palm Beach, joined by +100 volunteers, will gather to                               roll up their sleeves for a hands-on planting event to establish the City’s first “Food Forest.”

VISUALS:         Participants will plant fruit trees and vegetables. They will also prepare the site for future                                      plantings.
