About Learning Landscapes

Support from Portland Parks & Recreation

PP&R staff members are available to:

  • Help design the planting plan
  • Provide trees, tools, and planting support staff/volunteers on the planting day
  • Provide two years of summer watering and establishment care for the newly planted trees
  • Help secure supplies for long-term establishment of the newly planted trees

Leadership from the school

In order to plan a new Learning Landscape, the interested school needs to provide:

  • A main contact - A parent/staff/volunteer to help coordinate the tree planting and be responsible for the continued maintenance of the trees
  • Community support - A group of 5-10 dedicated volunteers to be present on the planting day and assist with periodic weeding and mulching throughout the first two summers
  • Student participation in the tree planting
  • Help developing a tree map for school and community use
